BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in southwest Syria, today, seizing new localities from the jihadist rebels.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to score another big advance in the Al-Lajat region of the Dara’a Governorate.

To start the day, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham held town of Jadal, which is located in the northeastern part of the militant-controlled Al-Lajat region.

The Syrian Arab Army would later infiltrate the lines of the jihadist rebels and expel them from Jadal after a fierce battle that lasted for several hours on Sunday morning.

Following the capture of Jadal, the Syrian Arab Army surprised the jihadist rebels by launching an attack on the town of Hawsh Hamad from their positions at nearby Umm Hariteen.

Led by the Tiger Forces and National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian military once again broke-through the militant defenses to expel the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham combatants from Hawsh Hamad.

The Syrian Army is now pushing further west from the Sweida-Dara’a axis in a bid to split this large Al-Lajat pocket in half.

With Russian airstrikes raining down on their positions, the jihadist rebels have been unable to hold their ground in the targeted areas of the Al-Lajat region.

If the Syrian Army can split the pocket in half, they will be able to force the jihadist rebels to surrender this part of the Al-Lajat region.

Good news, this is what one could expect having a strong Russia aerospace force support and protection. Congratulation to the aerospace force, and this is not the end. This is just one step further.
