U.S. urges allies to withdraw to Jordan, flee desert bastions
 (Zaman Al Wasl)-  U.S. army through its joint task command in Jordan has demanded allied rebel groups fighting regime forces in Syrian desert to withdraw to Jordan, saying this move will serve the de-escalation zone agreement as their defeat is inevitable.
 
In an audio message, the U.S. army asked Ahmed Abdo Martyrs Forces and Osoud al-Sharqiya to enter the Jordanian territories within 48 hours as regime forces and allied Shiite militias make rapid advances in the desert, also known as Badia.
 
The Joint Operation Room, based in Amman, that leads rebel factions in southern Syria, said it seek to me another ceasefire deal with the Assad regime.
 
The key rebel groups in Badia said last week that regional and International powers are pressing on them to end fight and to launch attacks on ISIS instead.
 
Ahmed Abdo Martyrs Forces and Osoud al-Sharqiya urged fellow rebel factions to launch attacks on regime forces in Qalamoun and Daraa to lessen the offensive in Badia as the regional plan is to strengthen Assad amid reports of 'positive' approaches between Amman and Damascus.
 
Ahmed Abdo Martyrs Forces said the ultimate goal of the Assad army's push in al-Badia was to link its forces with Iraq's militias on the other side of the border.
 
The Damascus-Baghdad highway was a major weapons supply route for Iranian weapons into Syria until ISIS seized large territory along the Iraqi-Syrian border, according to regional intelligence sources.
 
Since May, the regime army has been moving large numbers of troops to Badia region on the country's border with Iraq and Jordan. 
 
In August, Jaish al-Ashaer, the Army of Tribes, withdrew from its posts in Badia near Suweida city, in a surprise move granted regime army more territory.
