Daraa - SMART

On Sunday, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) stated that the United States informed the FSA not to expect U.S. forces to help block an attack by the loyalist forces in the Daraa governorate, Southern Syria.

In a message that activists circulated and SMART obtained, the United States said, "You should make your decision according to the interests of your people and factions, and not rely on a U.S. military intervention." Reuters reported FSA military sources that confirmed the United States' message.

The message included that the U.S. is still "advising" Russia and the loyalist forces not to launch a military operation that will breach the Southern Syria de-escalation agreement.

Russia participated in the battle that the loyalist forces and their allied militias launched in Daraa, using its warplanes to attack villages and towns in Eastern Daraa.

A week earlier, the loyalist forces launched a military operation in the Eastern Daraa and Western al-Suwaida countryside, with intensified aerial, artillery and missile shelling, killing and injuring dozens of civilians, including women and children. The military operation destroyed 60 per cent of the al-Harak town and 60 per cent of the al-Moleihah village, displacing tens of thousands of civilians from their homes.

Earlier, the loyalist forces brought military reinforcements to support the military operation in the governorate, which is included in the de-escalation zone agreed upon by Russia, the main supporter of the Syrian government, the U.S. and Jordan.

On July 20, 2017, the Washington Post published information, which it said came from sources in the U.S. Central Investigations Agency, saying that the U.S. decided to "terminate their support of the Syrian opposition factions."
