BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – A massive convoy of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reinforcements arrived in the provincial capital of Dara’a on Saturday afternoon, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

The Syrian Arab Army reinforcements were sent from the western countryside of Damascus, where they were originally planning to attack the key town of Beit Jinn near the Golan Heights region of Al-Quneitra.

According to the military source, these reinforcements are needed to help the Syrian Arab Army reclaim the initiative in the provincial capital and retake the territory they lost to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in Al-Manishiyah.

Currently, the jihadist rebels control more than 50 percent of Al-Manishiyah, including the entire southern half of the district.

While the Syrian Army has a strong defensive line in the northern part of Al-Manishiyah, they were relatively outnumbered for much of the battle, making it difficult to counter.
