Iranian Leader's Top Aide: Victory in Dara'a Preludes Expulsion of US Forces from Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Supreme Leader's top aide for international affairs Ali Akbar Velayati lauded the Syrian army and its allies' recent advances in Dara'a province, saying that it will pave the ground for the expulsion of the US forces from Eastern Syria.

"Undoubtedly, the victory in Dara'a is a prelude to other victories in Eastern Euphrates to the benefit of the Syrian government and its allies and the Americans will be forced to withdraw from Eastern Euphrates sooner or later and the Syrian people will get rid of them," Velayati said in a meeting with Syrian Higher Education Minister Atef Naddaf in Tehran on Tuesday.

He referred to the recent US strikes against the Iraqi and Syrian people in Southeastern Syria and killing of the two countries' people, and said, "Certainly, they will receive its response from the Syrian and Iraqi people."

"Your and our main enemy is the US, Israel and the reactionary regional states and they still continue attempts against the Syrian government and nation," Velayati said.

In relevant remarks late last month, outgoing Iranian Ambassador to Beirut Mohammad Fathali underlined the Syrian army's successful operations against the terrorist groups in the South, saying that Washington is likely to withdraw its forces from Southern Syria.

"At present, the operations in Southern Syria are progressing in the best manner possible thanks to the Syrian army, people and their allies' efforts and God willing, we will soon witness annihilation of terrorist groups in the South," Fathali told the Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper last Saturday before the end of his mission in Lebanon.

He said that the US does not intend to spend more money in Syria and wants the Persian Gulf Arab states to pay the costs, adding, "They will likely withdraw (from Southern Syria)."

Asked about Iran and Russia's joint efforts against the terrorist groups in Syria, Fathali said that both countries are helping Syria to get rid of terrorists.

"We are in consensus with the Russians to target all terrorist groups in the entire region," he said.

His remarks came as the Syrian army is rapidly advancing in operations against terrorists in Southern Syria.

Dara'a: Syrian Army Receives More Military Hardware from Humeimim
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army troops, deployed in Dara'a province, received a long convoy of military hardware on Tuesday that had left Russia-run Humeimim Airbase in Lattakia province for Southern battlefields.

The Russian forces dispatched a large convoy of military equipment from Humeimim airbase to the Syrian Army's positions in Dara'a province via the international highway along the coast towards Damascus and the Southern part of the country.

The convoy included tens of military vehicles and a large volume of arms and ammunition.

The convoy was dispatched to the Southern battlefields to provide logistical support for the army in Dara'a.

A military source reported earlier today that the army men continued to storm terrorists' positions in Western Dara'a and arrived at the entrance of Tafas township.

Also, the army's artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at terrorists' movements in Seida and al-Tayibah townships, inflicting major losses on the militants, the source added.

In the meantime, other units of the army restored security to al-Moseirefeh township in Eastern Dara'a, the source further said.

The source went on to say that the army has tightened noose on the terrorists West of Dara'a, adding that the army has gained control over 58 percent of territory in Dara'a province.

Commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) in Dara'a Abu Jaber al-Shami announced that his fighters will never quit battle with the army in the Southern province.
