Syrian Army raises flag over highest point in Daraa

18 July 2018 16:39

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) took control of the highest point in the Daraa Governorate over the weekend, following a 48 hour battle with the jihadist rebels.

Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army captured the strategic hilltop of Tal Al-Harrah on Sunday, forcing the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham to fall back the eastern countryside of Al-Quneitra.

Tal Al-Harrah is the most important site in southwest Syria because it overlooks an area of 50 square kilometers.

 

 The Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades captured Tal Al-Harrah during their first major offensive in southern Syria.

Once Tal Al-Harrah was captured, the Free Syrian Army seized most of western Daraa and southern Al-Quneitra.

The Free Syrian Army would control this part of Daraa for nearly four years before the Syrian Arab Army would retake this area on Sunday.
