DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 P.M.) – With ISIS on the decline, the SAA and FSA contingents based in the Syrian desert have begun turning on one another, clashing on a daily basis in sparsely populated areas of Rif Dimashq, Sweida and Homs.

Last night, Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants fired dozens of GRAD rockets on strong points controlled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the desert east of Damascus.

In response, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted numerous sorties on FSA convoys, even targeting a rearguard headquarter at the Al-Tanf border crossing.

The FSA groups in eastern Homs, formerly known as the New Syrian Army, are considered US and Jordanian proxies as they have undergone extensive training in camps across the border.

Recently, Hezbollah drones spotted some 400 US and Jordanian tanks and armored vehicles near the border with Syria, causing great concern in Damascus and Beirut of a looming invasion.
