The southern front in the Syrian conflict has several zones of conflict. The Syrian Arab Republican Government (SARG) has firm control of the governorate of Suywada. While the armed opposition holds a majority presence in Deraa governorate, the SARG’s progress into the governorate springs from Damascus and follows a major highway almost to the Jordanian border. The Qunaitra governorate, which borders Israel, Lebanon, and Jordan, is mostly in the opposition’s control, however SARG’s presence spills over from the Rif Dimashq governorate into Qunaitra and across the demilitarized zone of Golan Heights. SARG mostly holds the areas around Damascus, with pockets of resistance from the Syrian opposition.
