Daraa: 7th Mechanized Division Secures Most of Kafr Shamis
The Syrian Arab Army’s 7th Mechanized Division has made huge strides at Kafr Shamis in northern Dara’a after securing the Kafr Shamis-Sinameen Road inside this besieged town, while also progressing towards Tal ‘Antar to the north.
The 7th Division was assisted by the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF), who bombarded the militants from the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Al-Nusra Front) in the western part of the town on Tuesday.
Continuing their progress near Tal Al-Harra, Hezbollah (Party of God) and the SAA’s 9th Armored Division advanced to the outskirts of Tal Qareen from the town of Al-Habariyah, as they attempted to break-through Jabhat Al-Nusra’s frontline defenses.
Near Al-Lajat, the SAA’s 5th Armored Division – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – repelled an agglomeration of militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Liwaa Al-Yarmouk (Yarmouk Brigades) that attempted to infiltrate into the village of Rastoum from Al-Wardat, resulting in the death of 9 enemy combatants.
