BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken control of the Al-Lajat region of northeast Dara’a after quick agreement was reached with the jihadist rebels there.
According to a military source in the government stronghold of Izra’a, the Syrian Arab Army was handed over at least 20 towns located just north of Busra Al-Harir.
As a result of this deal, the Syrian Arab Army is now at the northern outskirts of Busra Al-Harir, which will spell bad news for the jihadist rebels there.
The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham now find themselves surrounded by the Syrian Arab Army from three different flanks at Busra Al-Harir.
The Syrian Arab Army is now working on capturing Busra Al-Harir because the jihadist rebels at the town are refusing to surrender or withdraw from the town.
A source from the Syrian Army told Al-Masdar that their forces are not only trying to enter Busra Al-Harir at this moment, but they are also attempting cutoff the supply route to this jihadist stronghold from the south.
If they are successful in taking hold of Busra Al-Harir, the next target for the Syrian Army will be the large town of Al-Hirak, which is located just north of the Nassib Crossing and historical city of Busra Al-Sham.
