BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack against the jihadist rebels in the western countryside of Daraa.

Led by their Tiger Forces and air force, the Syrian military stormed several areas under the control of the jihadist rebels in a bid to expel Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham from the Tal Al-Harrah area.

According to a military report from Daraa, the Syrian Arab Army’s powerful attack resulted in the capture of Al-Tayhah after a short battle with the jihadist rebels.

Al-Tayhah is located just northwest of the key town of Al-Mallal in western Daraa.

This latest attack by the Syrian Army comes just days after the jihadist rebels refused to leave the Tal Al-Harrah area near the Al-Quneitra provincial border.

In order to weaken the resolve of the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) launched a plethora of airstrikes over Tal Al-Harrah and its surrounding area, inflicting heavy damage on Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s defenses.

The Syrian military has taken advantage of these airstrikes to sweep through the sites that have been abandoned by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies in western Daraa.

Since Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham has refused to leave the western countryside of Daraa, the Syrian Army has restarted their operations in this part of the province to force them to reconsider.

The ultimate goal for the Syrian military is to force the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fighters to accept a deal to be evacuated to the northern region of Syria.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham recently disrupted the peace agreement between the Syrian government and residents of Al-Harrah, prompting the SAA to get involved militarily.
