BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – Video footage has emerged showing the Syrian Army’s ongoing offensive operation against armed rebel groups in Syria’s eastern Qalamoun region.

The operation, spearheaded by the elite Tiger Forces Division, has so far seen government troops completely encircle the strategic rebel stronghold city of Ar-Ruhaybah and push militants to accept a surrender.

Despite the virtual defeat of rebel fighters throughout the region, the Tiger Forces have since pushed on to physically roll up and clear the vast desert area east of Ar-Ruhaybah and Jayrud cities.

In support of advances on the ground, the Syrian Air Force is targeting insurgent positions throughout the Batra and Ruhaybah mountain chains; around one hundred airstrikes have reportedly been conducted since the main offensive started three days ago.
