BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – At approximately 12:30 A.M. (local time), the Syrian Arab Army began their imperative push to capture the strategic town of Busra Al-Harir in southwest Syria.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian military attacked Busra Al-Harir from several axes in a bid to overwhelm the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

According to a military source in nearby Izra’a, the Syrian military is attempting to take full control of Busra Al-Harir.

Prior to this assault, the Syrian Arab Army managed to secure an agreement with the jihadist forces in the Al-Lajat region; this deal would see the latter withdraw south to Busra Al-Harir.

Once agreement was put in place, the Syrian Army began mobilizing their troops to attack Busra Al-Harir tonight.

Busra Al-Harir is important for several reasons: 1) it is located directly east of the government stronghold of Izra’a 2) it is located along Izra’a-Sweida Highway 3) it is the gateway to the strategic town of Al-Hirak.

More details to come…
