BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a major advance near the occupied Golan Heights this week, capturing several sites inside the jihadist-held Beit Jinn pocket.
Led by the 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by capturing the large hilltop of Tal Al-Bayda.
Following the capture of Tal Al-Bayda, the Syrian Army made their push to take control of Tal Maqtoul Al-Gharbiyah; they would seize this hilltop shortly after launching their attack.
With these hilltops captured, the Syrian Army is now at the northern gate of Mughar Al-Mir, which is one of the last jihadist strongholds in the Beit Jinn pocket.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army is now working to capture the last hilltops (Tal Al-Zaiyat and Taloul Al-Najjar) to the east of Mughar Al-Mir.
Once these hilltops to the east of Mughar Al-Mir are captured, the Syrian Army will offer terms of surrender to the jihadist rebels, as they will have no outlet for retreat.
