As-Suwayda - SMART

On Sunday, the Sheikh al-Karamah forces warned Russia against attempting to "provoke" in the as-Suwayda governorate, Southern Syria. The al-Karamah forces consider Russia's recent statements as part of a "very serious" escalation.

Local newspapers revealed that Russian officers, security leaders and clerics of the Druze community in as-Suwayda met on June 20, 2018. Russia acknowledged the existence of "terrorist organizations" in the governorate, including the Sheikh al-Karamah group.

The al-Karamah forces said in a statement that the violation of any man in the governorate is a "declaration of war." They stressed their refusal to hand over their weapons used to defend their land.

The statement described Russia as an "occupying state." The statement also recalled the participation of the as Suwayda people in expelling the French mandate from Syria, and stressed their ability to "break any other occupation".

Loyalist forces are intensifying shelling on Daraa and the western countryside of as Suwayda, and mobalizing military reinforcements, amid reports of a military operation in the governorate as part of the de-escalation agreement reached by Russia (the main backer of the Syrian government), the United States and Jordan.

On June 21, 2018, the al-Karamah Men Movement asserted its "positive neutrality" about any military developments in the region.
