BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a small offensive in the northeastern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate tonight.

Backed by heavy artillery and missiles, the Taha Group of the Tiger Forces made their second attempt to capture the Air Defense Base that is located near the strategic town of Busra Al-Harir.

According to preliminary reports from nearby Izra’a, the Syrian Army has allegedly taken control of the Air Defense Base after a fierce battle with the Islamist rebels in the area.

Al-Masdar is awaiting confirmation from the Syrian Army regarding the alleged capture of the Air Defense Base.

The elite Tiger Forces are heavily targeting Busra Al-Harir at the moment, as they attempt to weaken the enemy’s resolve before they make a push to capture the town.

Tonight’s attack by the Syrian Army is a small offensive that is likely being conducted for reconnaissance purposes.

The last time the Syrian Army attempted to capture Busra Al-Harir was in 2015; they ended up failing to advance, while losing several military personnel in the process.

More details to come…
