Unknown Gunmen Attack Syrian Army Checkpoint In Daraa Outskirt

Illustrative image

Unknown gunmen have attacked a checkpoint of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on a road leading to the National Hospital in the outskirts of the city of Daraa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on March 31.

According to the pro-opposition monitoring group, several Syrian service members were injured in the attack. One of the injured soldiers is reportedly in a critical condition.

Last year, the SAA liberated the opposition-held part of Daraa and the nearby governorate of al-Quneitra following a large-scale military operation. Back then, radical militants surrendered and accepted an evacuation agreement, while Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters joined the reconciliation process.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack near the National Hospital so far. However, the so-called Popular Resistance in Daraa could be behind it. The group, which emerged last year, says that its operations are a response to the violations of the reconciliation agreement by the Damascus government.

Radical groups, such as Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and ISIS, are likely behind these attempts to destabilize southern Syria on the hopes of regaining their influence there.

“UNKNOWN, (?)” who care. They are terrorists and as long as terrorists be in Idlib, Al-Tanf , and northeast Euphrates river, the attacks will continue over and over and over and over again.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

No, it’s more likely to be the FSA which supposedly reconciled with Assad, HTS are busy elsewhere and so is Isis, that leaves the FSA as the most likely candidates, and they still have lots of local support since the reconciliation process allowed all of the FSA fighters families to go back to their homes scott free and unmolested.

Anyone remember those “ISIS” fighters that the US rescued from the Euphrates Valley and have since been training at both bases in Iraq and at Al Tanf? You want to know where they were re-assigned by their American masters to? Now you have your answer!
