BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack on the jihadist-held Brigade 52 Base in east Daraa.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army reportedly captured Brigade 52 from the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham after a short battle this morning.
Following the capture of Brigade 52, the Syrian Army pushed south towards the jihadist-held town of Rakham, which is located just north of Al-Karak.
According to field journalist Sohayb Masri, the Syrian Army seized Rakham from the jihadist rebels, forcing them to further retreat south towards Al-Karak.

If this report proves, the Syrian Army will be able to envelop the strategic town of Al-Hirak soon, as it is already surrounded from its eastern and northern flanks.
Typically, the Tiger Forces surround their targets from three flanks, leaving an opening for the enemy fighters to flee.
This is likely to happen in Al-Hirak, as the Tiger Forces want to ensure that the battle will be short and not costly.
