Russia: Syrian Army Gains Control Over Part of Border with Jordan

The Russian General Staff announced that the Syrian government troops have established control over a part of the country's border with Jordan.

The Syrian army now controls 105 kilometers of the Syria-Jordan border and has already installed nine checkpoints, the commander of the Russian grouping in Syria, Col. Gen. Sergei Surovikin said, Sputnik reported.

"As part of the advance of the Syrian army on Daesh's positions, the control over 105 kilometers of the Syrian-Jordanian border has been restored," he added.

"The efforts of the government forces on establishing full control over the Syrian-Jordanian border and the border with Iraq continue," he said, adding that a reconciliation process between tribes controlling the area is underway.

The Syrian army troops defeated large groups of Daesh militants in the past month, and the terrorists suffered substantial losses, Surovikin said

"Over the last month, the government troops have been successful in the Northeast of the Aleppo province, near Palmyra, Eastern Qalamoun and in the South of Syria, they actively operate, moving along the Syrian-Jordanian border and the border with Iraq. As a result, large groups of Daesh were defeated, while the enemy suffered significant losses in manpower and equipment," Surovikin added.

Surovikin pointed out that just in a month they managed to liberate 109 settlements and 3,922 square kilometers (1,514 square miles) of the territory.

Earlier, Syrian President Bashar Assad announced that the Syrian government has intel suggesting that Jordan was planning to deploy tropps in Syria in coordination with the US.
