On June 29, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 4th Division, backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, captured the hill of Zumaytiyah and the nearby air defense base west of the city of Daraa following heavy clashes with the Free Syrian Army (FSA), according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
A source in the 4th Division told SouthFront that the FSA’s main supply route between the western and eastern countrysides of Daraa is now under the fire control of the SAA. The next target of the 4th Division is the village of al-Yadudah west of Daraa, according to the source.
Meanwhile, the SAA and the Tiger Forces resumed their advance in the eastern Daraa countryside and captured the towns of al-Karak, according to the Hezbollah media wing. Syrian opposition activists confirmed that FSA fighters withdrew from the town, which may sign a reconciliation agreement with the Damascus government.
Hours earlier, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the towns of Umm al-Mayadin, Nasib, al-Tayyibah and Sayda in the eastern Daraa countryside had accepted a similar reconciliation agreement.
The upcoming days will likely witness the full collapse of the reaming positions of the FSA in the eastern Daraa countryside as most people there have stressed their support for a peaceful agreement.
