On June 30, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces, backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, captured the towns and villages of al-Jizah, Umm Walad and Kahil along with the hills of Shikeh Hassan and Khalef in the eastern Daraa countryside, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
Few hours earlier, the SAA captured the towns and villages of al-Masrifeh, Sahwat Al-Qamh, Karak, Ghariyat al-Gharbiyah and Ghariyat al-Sharqiyah. Currently, more than 60% of the eastern Daraa countryside is under the control of the SAA.
According to Syrian pro-government sources, the SAA is currently attacking the positions of the FSA around the town of Busra al-Sham near the administrative border with the governorate of al-Suwayda. The SAA will likely enter the town in the upcoming days, if not hours.
The recent developments in the eastern Daraa countryside suggest that the remaining positions of the FSA there are about to collapse. Once this happens, the SAA will shift its forces to the city of Daraa and the western Daraa countryside.
