TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army has dispatched hundreds of its forces stationed in de-escalation zones to the Southern borders of the country near Jordan, local sources revealed on Thursday.
Local sources in Sweida reported that the Syrian government has deployed its forces, stationed in the province, in regions near the Jordanian border after the recent moves by the US, British and Jordanian military men and terrorists.
Meantime, heavy clashes continue between the Syrian army forces and the terrorists in Zaza and al-Saba'a Bayar regions in the Southeastern Badiyeh of Homs near the borders with Jordan after a major offensive by the militants two days ago.
Army sources also said that the air force, artillery and missile units are pounding the conflict zones.
Opposition groups' media sources confirmed on Wednesday that the Syrian Air Force has bombed terrorists' concentration centers heavily along the border with Jordan in retaliation for the militants' attack on pro-government forces in the region.
The sources said that terrorists of Aswad al-Sharqiyeh and Liwa Shohada al-Quaryatayn attacked the Syrian Army troops' positons and engaged in fierce clashes with the army soldiers in al-Saba'a Bayar region and Zaza checkpoint in Badiyeh (desert) al-Shamiyeh between Southeastern Homs with Eastern Qalamoun to advance towards the road that goes to al-Tanf border-crossing with Iraq.
They added that the army aircraft carried out a retaliatory attack and bombed the Aswad al-Sharqiyeh terrorists' positons heavily at the border with Jordan.
Also, intelligent agents reported on Tuesday that the US, British and Jordanian forces are preparing for a possible invasion of Syria under the pretext of war on ISIL terrorists.
According to reports, Damascus has gone on the alert after intelligence reports gathered from surveillance drones suggested that the US, Britain and Jordanian militaries may be prepping a massive invasion of Syria.
Nearly 400 American and Jordanian military vehicles have been located at a Jordanian military base near the Syrian desert border, the reports said, adding there is no ISIL terrorists in the region in which the US, British and Jordanian forces are operating.
The reports further added that activities of these three countries at border are aimed at gathering Arab and Western forces in al-Zarqa camp in which there are now almost 4,500 gunmen.
The report went on to say that the gunmen in al-Zarqa camp have gone under training to battle the Syrian army to stretch a belt around Syria, a plan that is nothing more than an occupation.
The intelligence reports also said that the military convoys of the US, Jordan and Britain may launch an assault to help the West-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) around the Al-Tanf border crossing.
