DAMASCUS, After dislodging the rebels entirely from the capital Damascus, the Syrian army's next military operation will be in the southern province of Daraa, activists and a military expert said on Friday.
The Syrian air force dropped leaflets on rebel-held areas in Daraa on Friday, urging the militants to lay down their weapons as military reinforcements were sent to southern Syria.
Ali Maksoud, a retired military officer, told Xinhua that the military reinforcements and the dropping of leaflets by Syrian helicopters indicate that all preparations have completed for launching the next military operation in Daraa.
This development comes as the Syrian army has recently dislodged the rebels from the Eastern Ghouta countryside of Damascus and the Qalamoun region in the northern countryside of Damascus as well as formerly Islamic State (IS)-held areas south of Damascus.
Daraa is so important as it's located near the Jordanian border and is 100 km from the capital.
