BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has entered a new town near the occupied Golan Heights, a military communique stated this afternoon.
The military communique claimed that the Syrian Army entered the town of Ghadeir Al-Bustan in the Daraa Governorate.
Similar to the other towns they took control of in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, the Syrian Army was able to enter Ghadeir Al-Bustan after the Islamic State abandoned the town.
The Syrian Army is now working to establish control of Ghadeir Al-Bustan, which is likely to happen after their demining teams finish clearing the explosives around the town.
While the Syrian Army’s 4th Armored Division takes control of the Al-Quneitra Governorate, their allies from the Tiger Forces are busy clearing the large Islamic State (ISIS) pocket in southwest Daraa.
The Tiger Forces are now pushing through the Islamic State’s pocket in the strategic Yarmouk Basin region of Daraa.
