BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a major advance in west Daraa, today, capturing several important sites from the jihadist rebels.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army kicked off the day by capturing the small town of Al-Tayhah in west Daraa.

Following the capture of Al-Tayhah, the towns in west Daraa began falling like dominoes to the Syrian Arab Army and their allies.

Among the areas to fall to the Syrian Arab Army, today, was the town of Al-Harrah and its corresponding hilltop, which is arguably the most important site in western Daraa.

According to a military source in Daraa, the town of Al-Harra itself was empty after a reconciliation agreement was reached two days ago; however, its hilltop was controlled by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, who refused to hand it over the Syrian Army.

In response to the refusal from the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Arab Army launched a major attack, yesterday, that targeted all of the areas controlled by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in west Daraa.

The Syrian Army was able to finally secure Al-Harrah on Monday, following the withdrawal of the jihadist rebels.

Below is a video of the Tiger Forces entering Al-Harrah this afternoon:
