Large reinforcements arrived to SAA units operating in the northern Suweida countryside and at the Al-Tanf road area. The deployed units were from the National Defense Forces in Suweida, the Arab Tawheed Party, the Ibdal movement and the Iraqi Imam Ali Battalions.

On Saturday, the US-led coalition deployed units of the Norwegian Special Operations Forces at the Al-Tanf base. On Sunday, the coalition began training members of the Maghawir al-Thawra in Al-Tanf.

Reports have been circulating about an alleged participation of Russian troops in the SAA operation in northern Suweida countryside in order to prevent the US-led coalition from bombing the advancing Syrian troops . However, there is no real evidence of these allegations so far.
