MILITANTS FLEE FROM RUKBAN AS SAA APPROACHES THE BORDER

00
The SAA advance towards the border with Jordan caused concern among the militants who started to leave the area, following the US-led coalition troops who have withdrawn from Zakaf base and headed to al-Tanf.

In the last three days the Syrian army has established control over a dozen of checkpoints on the Jordanian border without meeting any resistance from the armed groups active in the area. The SAA have also captured Al-Bweib well and Kherbet al-Hajaj situated 34 miles from Rukban camp, which also serves as a crossing point and a base for the militants.

Despite their promises to stay in the area, the militants retreated from the vicinity of Al-Rukban towards Jordan. It is believed that the armed groups were influenced by Military Operation Center (MOC) which has demanded them to leave the area.
