BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – A new video released by ANNA News Agency on Thursday showed the military operation that led to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seizing northeast Daraa.
The 20 minute long video shows the Syrian Arab Army involved in heavy clashes with the jihadist rebels in the Al-Lajat region of northeast Daraa.
In particular, the video below shows the Tiger Forces heavily shelling the jihadist positions before they stormed the latter’s defenses with their tanks and technical vehicles.
This operation would eventually lead to the jihadist rebels surrendering the Al-Lajat region and Busra AL-Harir, which was their stronghold in northeast Daraa for several years.
Since capturing both Busra Al-Harir and Al-Laja, the Syrian Arab Army has pushed south towards the Jordanian border in a bid to seize the Nassib Crossing.
While they have yet to reach the border, the Syrian Arab Army has captured the strategic town of Al-Hirak and several other areas.
Among these sites captured near Al-Hirak were the Brigade 52, Battalion 49, and Battalion 279 bases.
The Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) are now pushing further south of Al-Hirak towards the historical city of Busra Al-Sham, which was captured by the rebel forces during their offensive in early 2015.
