Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian military attacked Busra Al-Harir from several axes in a bid to overwhelm the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham [aka al Qaeda].
According to a military source in nearby Izra’a, the Syrian military is attempting to take full control of Busra Al-Harir.
Prior to this assault, the Syrian Arab Army managed to secure an agreement with the jihadist forces in the Al-Lajat region; this deal would see the latter withdraw south to Busra Al-Harir.
Once the agreement was put in place, the Syrian Army began mobilizing their troops to attack Busra Al-Harir tonight.
Busra Al-Harir is important for three reasons; it's --
1) located directly east of the government stronghold of Izra’a
2) located along Izra’a-Sweida Highway
3) the gateway to the strategic town of Al-Hirak
