BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Tiger Forces played an integral role in the recent rebel surrender of the Nassib Crossing in southern Daraa, as their troops advanced through several areas before reaching the Jordanian border.
On Thursday, Anna News released never before seen footage of the Tiger Forces operation that led to the eventual capture of the Nassib Crossing from the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
In the second part of this Daraa series, Anna News chronicles the intense battle for the Jordanian border through the lenses of the Tiger Forces, who led this imperative operation.
As shown in the footage below, the Tiger Forces swept through the towns of Nuyamah, Umm Mayathin, and Al-Taybah before reaching the Nassib Crossing last week.
In addition to capturing the Nassib Crossing, the footage above shows the Syrian Army targeting the rebel forces along the Damascus-Amman Highway.
While capturing the Nassib Crossing was important, the Tiger Forces’ main objective was to clear the entire Damascus-Amman Highway in order to reopen this imperative roadway between the two capitals of Jordan and Syria.
The Tiger Forces would take hold of the Damascus-Amman Highway shortly after advancing north from the Nassib Crossing, forcing the rebels to fall back towards the provincial capital of Daraa
