BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a surprise ground assault in the northeastern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate last night.

Backed by heavy artillery, the Syrian Arab Army attempted to advance near the Air Defense Base east of the small town of Masekah.

An intense battle would ensue for several hours, as the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) attempted to fracture the enemy’s front-lines.

According to pro-government activists, the Syrian Army allegedly captured the Air Defense Base and several farms located between the towns of Busra Al-Harir and Masekah; however, these advances are still not confirmed.

Al-Masdar is awaiting confirmation from the Syrian Army regarding these claims.

If these reports prove true, this will be the first time in years that the Syrian Arab Army has been able to advance inside the Al-Lijat region of northeast Dara’a.

The Al-Lijat region has mostly been under the control of the rebel forces since the start of the war.

The Syrian Army will need to capture this strategic volcanic area in northeast Dara’a if they want to secure the Nassib Crossing in the southeastern part of the province.
