BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham are on their last legs in the West Ghouta region, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies close in on the last two towns in the Beit Jinn pocket.
Led by their 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to seize almost all of the Beit Jinn pocket, leaving just one hilltop between them and the key town of Mughar Al-Mir.
Once the Beit Jinn pocket is cleared, the Syrian Army will shift their attention to the Hader front, which is currently hot-zone due to the constant offensives launched by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
Making this front even more complicated is the constant Israeli interference that often paves the way for the jihadist rebels to make temporary gains.
While these gains are often reversed, the Syrian military is constantly forced to send reinforcements to the Hader front, which slows down their advances in other areas.
