Daraa Province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored that the regime forces have expanded their scope of control in the western countryside of Daraa, where the regime forces were deployed along the border line from the airbase in the west of Daraa, to the east of Shihab town, after they had imposed their control on the airbase which is located in the west of Daraa city, and after they managed today the 8th of July 2018, to take the control of Al-Tayba and Om al-Mayathen towns, in the wake of tens of raids which targeted the area, thus, the regime forces have expanded their scope of control to more than 72.4% of the area of Daraa province, while the factions’ scope of control has decreased to 21% of the area of the province, while Jaysh Khalid Ibn al-Walid is in control of an area of 6.6% of Daraa province.
