BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham are hoping for a miracle in the West Ghouta region of Damascus as their Beit Jinn is on the verge of being split in half.
With Israel just a few kilometers away from the Beit Jinn pocket, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies were likely hoping for some-sort of interference to obstruct the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) advance.
However, the jihadist rebels appear to be on their own, as the Syrian Army isolates the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s stronghold of Mughar Al-Mir in an effort to split the Beit Jinn pocket.
The Syrian Army has already began the process of isolating Mughar Al-Mir on Tuesday after seizing several hilltops from the crumbling Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham forces.
In the coming days, the Beit Jinn pocket should be split in two, with the eastern half belonging to the reconciled rebels and the western half belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
