On June 28, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces captured the village of Rakham and the 52nd Brigade southeast of the town of al-Harak in the eastern Daraa countryside, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
A source in the SAA told SouthFront that the SAA started its ground attack on the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) positions in the villages of Alma and al-Surah, west of al-Harak. The SAA will likely enter the two towns in the upcoming hours, according to the source.
In a related development, the SAA opened a humanitarian corridor near the town of Da’il in the western Daraa countryside. According to Syrian pro-government activists, hundreds of civilians, including women and children, have left the FSA-held areas through the corridor so far.
