BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces officially entered the battle for southwest Syria, tonight, a military source told Al-Masdar from the Daraa Governorate.
Russian jets reportedly unleashed a flurry of airstrikes over the northeastern countryside of the Daraa Governorate at 11 P.M. (local time), hitting several militant targets in the process.
The Russian Aerospace Forces have now launched over 30 airstrikes since 11 P.M., with the majority of these strikes concentrating on the strategic town of Busra Al-Harir, which is located directly east of Izra’a.
As the Russian military hammers northeast Daraaa, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to launch another major assault in the Busra Al-Harir area.
On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army managed to score a big advance in northeast Daraa, when their forces managed to capture four towns from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
The Syrian Arab Army is currently working to envelop the strategic town of Busra Al-Harir.
Once Busra Al-Harir is encircled, the Syrian Arab Army is going to push the jihadist rebels to accept a reconciliation deal, which will likely see the HTS militants transported to northern Syria.
