For those who think the Southern Front (yawn) still exists, let it be known that if it does, it must be a climatological phenomenon – with nothing to do with warfare. Monzer and another source I connected with 2 days ago, who will not be a regular facet of our posts, tell me that the number of terrorists is dwindling because of an interesting political development that some of you might find almost comical:
Salafists in Jordan are beginning to debate the whole enterprise in Syria. In articles published on their websites (which I have not seen), they are conflicted over why they are dying in Syria when the most corrupt, anti-Arab, pro-British regime in the Middle East is right there in Amman, Jordan. Expect to hear less and less about Jordanians fighting in the south as they begin to re-evaluate their priorities. We wish the Tom Thumb Tyrant of Jordan the very best of luck. Blowback!
Sayda Al-Hawraan in East Der’ah rural: The SAA and NDF came upon a pack of skunks transporting weapons and ammunition to safer quarters near the Jordanian border. The SAA did not find their efforts worthy of support and killed 7 while taking 11 prisoner. They belonged to a soon-to-be-extinct group calling itself “Kateebat Nuhaal”.
Between Al-Naaziheen Camp and the Meteorological Observatory: This occurred 5 days ago and I failed to report it. At the Zenobia School, a pack of nutrias tried to infiltrate but flopped. No details.

Al-Hiraak: At Dayr Al-Salb Mosque, the SAA killed 28 terrorists and wounded over 50 in a major battle that will soon herald a declaration that this area is completely terrorist-free:
- Shurahbeel Hawaaritha (This guy sounds like he was on Noah’s ark)
- Ahmad Sayf-Al-Deen
- “Abu Haatem Al-Masri” (SUSPECTED EGYPTIAN DUNG BEETLE)
- Khaaled Dahdah
I have no other names.
‘Itmaan: Bayt Al-Jamal area. An attack by NDF locked down an entire nest of terrorists and killed a confirmed 6. No other details.
Major advances reported by SAA in Nawaa and Tal-Jumoo’ rural areas. We are waiting for more news as vermin carcasses pile up and create a real problem for space.

As we write, the SAAF is attacking positions held by Nusra and ISIS in this area as part of an effort to help Iraqi armed forces. Yesterday, the SAAF pounded Shaddaadi on the Iraqi border.

Saraaqeb: 11 terrorists killed on June 11, 2014 along with the destruction of 2 pickups with 23mm cannons. No names. I held off on publishing this item because I was told I would have the terrorist-stats. They didn’t come in and I can’t complain.
