BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack on Tuesday morning that targeted the rebel stronghold of Busra Al-Harir in northeast Daraa.

The Syrian Army would subsequently capture Busra Al-Harir after a short battle with the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

By sunrise, the Syrian Army had already seized the village of Madajin and moved their way to the neighboring town of Nahitah.

According to a military source in nearby Izra’a, the Syrian Army has since captured Nahitah from the jihadist rebels, forcing them to retreat to their east Daraa stronghold of Al-Hirak.

The source added that the Syrian Army is now at the outskirts of Al-Hirak and should be launching a ground attack to take control of this town in the coming hours.

Similar to Busra Al-Harir, Al-Hirak is located near the strategic Izra’a-Sweida Highway; its capture is currently a high priority for the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command because it is the gateway to southeast Daraa.

The rebel opposition propaganda tool the “Syria live map” is a joy to behold today, every airstrike, every ground assault, every recaptured area is on display for us all to see, and there’s quite a lot to see, it’s way more comprehensive than any of the other battle maps, pro or anti. Check it out if you’d like to see some pretty pictures that’ll show you exactly what’s happening and where, and no it’s not going to brainwash you into becoming anti Assad if you just look at it, I use it all the time and I’m about as pro… Read more »

If you speak about liveuamap, I don’t think they are siding : all the world is mapped and they link events with geolocations, highly using reports from Twitter posters and news agencies. When the source is considered politicised (e.g. state-owned news agency), there’s often a warning.
For sure, there is opposition propaganda, but you have also pro-regime stuff, e.g. “Ivan Sidorenko” (he uses the name of a famous Soviet sniper as an alias 😉 ).

Is there such a thing as unbiased media, I don’t think there is. It’s run from the US but has it’s tech infrastructure in the UK and a MASSIVE 200 journo’s gathering intel. Most of them might just be part time but it’s still a huge number of journo’s for a free public info organization, don’t you think. Problem 1 Originally it was developed to report on events in the Ukraine during the Russian intervention. Problem 2 They’re one of the most reliable sources of info full stop, and just about always the first to deliver it. Good problem but… Read more »
