Syrian Army Hits Rebel Positions Hard in Dara’a Province
The Syrian Army has gained the upper hand against the militants of al-Nusra Front and the ISIL in some parts of the Southern province of Dara’a, informed sources said.
The sources said that the Syrian soldiers’ operations against Takfiri terrorists of the ISIL in the nearby areas of Atman town in the Northern countryside of Dara’a province resulted in the killing and injuring of a number of them.
The army also inflicted heavy losses upon al-Nusra Front terrorists in the Eastern countryside of Dara’a city.
Abdel Qader Abdel Rahman al-Sharif, a senior rebel commander, was among the killed terrorists in the battlefield.
Syria has been battling foreign-sponsored militancy since March 2011. Estimates by the United Nations show that the violence fueled by Takfiri terrorist groups has so far left over 230,000 people dead and another seven million displaced.
