The Syrian Arab Army and security forces had stepped up their security measures in different parts of the southern governorate of Daraa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on August 4.

According to the London-based monitoring group, government forces established the following new fortifications:

  • A checkpoint between the towns of Jasim and Kafr Shams in northern Daraa;
  • A checkpoint between the towns of al-Harah and Zimrin in northern Daraa;
  • A new military post in the outskirt of al-Harah.

The SOHR also revealed that fresh reinforcements were deployed near the towns of Namar, Simlin, al-Harah, al-Jabi and Jasim.

In the last few months, a series of attacks targeted Syrian service members and local fighters in Daraa. ISIS claimed responsibility for some of them. Other terrorist groups and foreign sides, including the Israeli intelligence, are believed to be responsible for the rest.

The most recent attack took place on August 4, an informant of the Syrian intelligence was assassinated by gunmen on a road between the towns of Tafas and Muzayrib in the northern Daraa countryside.

Government forces’ new measures will likely improve security in northern Daraa. Nevertheless, more measures need to be taken. Government forces should improve coordination with local fighters.

    Chinese newspaper claims S-500 gives Russia advantage over US warplanes

    The Chinese newspaper, People’s Daily,
    described the Russian-made S-500 system as “unimaginably accurate”,
    indicating that it will take great responsibility in protecting the
    Russian sky.
    The Chinese daily noted that rapid progress has been made in
    developing all types of Russian weapons, such as “the T-14 tank, the
    Su-57 fighter, and of course, the S-500, which was recently successfully
    tested in Syria.”
    They pointed out that the results confirmed that the S-500 air
    defense system is able to shoot 10 long-range missiles at one time, even
    if the target moves at a speed ranging between 18 to 25 thousand
    kilometres-per-hour, and the system is also able to shoot down missiles
    and planes flying at an altitude 200 km.
    The newspaper reported that, in May 2020, Russian Deputy Defense
    Minister Alexei Krivorochko said that the first S-500 anti-aircraft
    missile systems could enter the forces of service in the Russian armed
    forces in 2021.
    The report pointed out that the S-500 is a multi-complex system with
    full configuration. It consists of control modes and anti-aircraft and
    missile sections.
    The guidance modes include an early warning radar, while the
    anti-aircraft unit includes a command center, a radar station, a guided
    radar and a launch pad with a “40N6E” missile.
    The anti-missile section consists of a command and radar center, an
    active radar station and a platform for short-range missiles “77N6-N”,
    and for long-range missiles “77N6-N1”.
    This multi-tasking system also allowed the S-500 air defense system
    to intercept several targets simultaneously, increase the radar
    detection range, and resist electromagnetic interference
    The newspaper considered that the ideal and effective way to confront
    a complex and variable system of attack from airspace is to combine
    different surface-to-air missiles into one network or create an
    integrated platform for different types of missiles. For this reason,
    the design of the S-500 defense system allows it a wide range of combat
    actions, and gives it excellent combat properties and strong immunity to

    In comparison with the S-400 air defense system, the Chinese
    newspaper said that the S-500 missiles have a greater range, as well as
    an improved ability to detect targets with hidden characteristics,
    noting that Russian anti-aircraft missiles, thanks to the emergence of
    the S-500, gained advantage over the American 5th generation fighters.

    If they can spare them, they should use hidden snipers to protect higher level intelligence officers in the unruly areas. Even slightly older veteran snipers would do.
