Military escalation in Syria’s Deraa region


BEIRUT (Reuters) – Warplanes struck an opposition-held area in Syria’s southwestern Deraa province on Tuesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, a military escalation in a territory where government forces have been mobilizing for an offensive.

The raids targeted the area of al-Masika village in northeastern Deraa province. Rebel forces control swathes of territory in southwestern Syria, which borders Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
