The Jerusalem Post reports: Syrian rebels have achieved “relative control” over the border area with Israel, a senior military source told The Jerusalem Post this week.
The development appears to mark yet another milestone in the gradual collapse of the Assad regime.
The rebel control of the border area has been in place since around mid-November, according to IDF evaluations.
As a result, the IDF is facing unknown armed groups, some of which are identified with the global jihad, sitting just across the Syrian border.
