Syrian army enters strategic town near Jordanian border

Syrian army forces have regained control of the Laja area in Dara'a Province from the Takfiri terrorists, the first major gain in its liberation operation in the southwestern areas near the Jordanian border.

Media run by Lebanon's Hezbollah and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Tuesday that the Syrian army troops had managed to push the Takfiri Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorists out of the area, including the strategic town of Busra al-Harir.

On Saturday, Syrian government forces liberated the villages of al-Bustan and al-Shumariya in Dara'a's eastern countryside.

Syria's southwest region is strategically sensitive because of its proximity to the frontiers with both Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
