Video: Massive Government Convoy Including Battle Tanks And Artillery Is Heading To Daraa Ahead Of Expected Offensive

A screenshot from the video

A video of a large military convoy of government forces (over 80 vehicles) heading to the southern Syrian province of Daraa appeared online on June 18.

The video shows a very long convoy, which includes battle tanks, artillery pieces, multiple rocket launchers and other equipment. It indirectly confirms that the Syrian Army and its allies are preparing to implement a military option to solve the militancy issue in southern Syria.

This decision is triggered by the unwillingness of militant groups and their foreign backers to negotiate a peaceful agreement in the area.

Last week, units of the elite Tiger Forces and their leader, General Suheil al-Hassan, deployed in the province of Daraa. The Tiger Forces will likely be one of the key offensive factions in the upcoming operation.

          True… Useless Abraham’s… Most of those in Iraq got destroyed and Iraq not taking any more such rubbish tanks .

          Many in Yemen got fried too

      • Jesus

        All tanks get blown up jako, when not properly deployed, have you seen Leopards A4 blown up by ISIS? A side or rear shot blows up the tank. What don’t you seem to understand about tank vulnerabilities? You think a tank has equal armour protection?

        On a side note, have you given thought why France and England declared war on Germany (Polish invasion) when they knew they were not going to do anything on the matter?
        Your statements are rather scant on details, so it seems you like using buzz words and BS statements.

        In my humble understanding you need to beef up and sound foundational concepts of what you like to discuss.

    • Daniel Miller

      no they are most likely ether saveing them for the defense of the capital and other important points. No need to waste their T90’s even tho they are very old T90 mod 1993’s they are still far better then anything else the SAA have.

    • Siegfried

      No, they expect your Israelis near Golan ;)..

  • Merijn

    Don’t forget to put an extra pair of SAMs on your Checklist SAA….NATO-Birds flying low this time of the year….

  • Daniel Castro

  • Smaug

    Units are moving in one at a time in full view of any passerby and/or publically announced, almost as if the SAA is trying to use the size of the force to scare the locals into submission.

    • Siegfried

      “To SCARE” or to make them HOPE that finally will get rid of your USraeli -CIA hired animals? ;)

    • Empire’s Frontiers

      Those occupying the pockets north of Damascus seemed to have become inured by the sustained peace they experienced

      The sons of the southern occupiers might pray their fathers are so prudent.

  • Tom Tom

    Five or six tanks, a feint south?

    • Siegfried

      “Five or six” is what THEY showed. They won’t gie us the exactly number :)

      • gustavo

        Maybe about hundreds tanks would be the right number.

    • potcracker2588

      fresh news from pompeo on talks with lavrov yesterday……………………….pompeo confirms he talled lavrov that if SAA attacks in sout-west syria daraa area, the USA will engage.

    • potcracker2588

      and 1 more thing..stop being ridiculuos on the number of tanks 5 or 6……the manpower of SAA used in this upcoming offensive is 40,000.Number of tanks??? definetly in the 100´s.
      But thats not the question…..will russia protect from nato and israeli airforce? thats the most important question by far.from the past actions and history the answer is no.So lets just all see how this will play out.

  • gustavo

    I hope this offensive stars right away, and Syria must stop delaying more and more this offensive. For sure Israel and USA will attack Syria ground troops, air defense system (Russia-Syria) is totally required.

  • potcracker2588

    new news from yesterdays conversation between lavrov and pompeo……..pompeo confirmed he talled lavrov that should SAA attack in south-west syria daraa area the usa military will engage

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    It’s already started, at least the FSA have already started. They’ve already attacked the vanguard convoy heading into Daraa city, and even though there were no losses as far as I know, they still managed to stop the convoy getting to where it was going.
    They’re pretty brave after reading all the media reports about the US warning the SAA not to break the de-escalation agreement, the agreement they refused to comply with. But they’ve got a big shock coming, they should know better than to rely on media BS, you boys aren’t on the safe list anymore, you’re on the expendables list now, and breaking the de-escalation agreement first, DUMB MUTTS. Bye bye FSA, it’s time to head north to catch up with your friends and Pappy Erdogan, or better still, stay here and be blown into little pieces.

  • Vitex

    Interesting collection of vehicles. T-55, 62, 72… lots of those home-grown golan missiles, plenty of artillery including what looked like new arty tractors from russia. Clearly a Russian-inspired “cannons heavy” sort of strategy. Is it a bit light on “technicals and motorbikes” though?

  • mhtsaropinigitakis

    and what are those cocksuckers Jordanians doing? other than being the usa and israel biches…they do nothing…they pretend to help vs isis and militants but they do nothing…they let Israelis fly over their airspace to bomb syrian forces…fucking cocksuckers!! their government pretended that they started war vs isis some years ago…their president wear a military uniform and took some pictures…and that was all.

    • Merijn

      ISIS burned a Jordanian Pilot to get Jordanese Folks a bit more involved… We All Know who is Responsible for Burning Him & ALL the Other Crimes ISIS has Committed…..THE United Kingdom…The United States of America…Wahhabistan….France… Italy…& tthe Rest of European Participants…NATO….Turkey…and So On….Remember Them…For they Are TERRORISTS…. and should be Convicted for War-Crimes… Massmurder…. Looting… Genocide… Illegal Bombings….Raping Children & Women… This is DEATH-SENTENCE STUFF!!!

      • mhtsaropinigitakis

        EXACTLY! and thats why those idiots at Jordan must wake up!!
