April 13, 2015
A review of the current events in Deraa province.
There was conflict on March 26th through April 1st, 2015, at the Syrian-Jordanian Nassib border crossing. While the armed opposition controls most of Deraa province, the Syrian Arab Republican government (SARG) maintains control over most of the M5 major highway that crosses into Jordan. The battle at Nassib Crossing witnessed the armed opposition entering the SARG-controlled Nassib town, ending in the government’s retreat to the east.
