Syrian government troops have intensified shelling in the southern province of Quneitra, which borders the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights, on Sunday and seized part of the area, a war monitor said.
Rebels still hold a strip straddling Deraa and Quneitra provinces which adjoins the occupied Golan Heights.
Syrian regime forces now hold more than 80 percent of Daraa province but scored fresh gains on Monday against remaining rebel forces in its western countryside and in neighbouring Quneitra.
Israel does not want its enemies Iran and Hezbollah, both allies of Syrian President Bashar al Assad, who are well entrenched in that area, to move forces near its border.
Regime forces have retaken the area of Mashara, Abdel Rahman added.
"Over 28 (air) strikes struck Mashara and intense artillery and missile bombardment", Suhaib al-Ruhail said, according to the news agency.

A rebel official, Abu Shaima, said at least 500 fighters were going to get on around 15 buses and that his bus was already on the road north to opposition-held Idlib province.
Syrian state television confirmed the transfers had begun, broadcasting images of white buses they said were carrying the fighters, their blue curtains drawn, surrounded by military forces.
Abu Bayan, a rebel commander, said most rebels in Deraa have made a decision to stay put rather than face an uncertain future in the opposition-held north, in the hope Damascus ally Russian Federation keeps to its promises to protect them against any retribution by Syrian authorities.
