Syrian Army Captures Al-Mansoura Inside the Al-Ghaab Plains

26 October 2015 6:04


Syrian Arab Army’s 45th Regiment of the 1st Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces of Joureen and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – have been immersed in a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) at the town of Al-Mansoura inside the Al-Ghaab Plains, where the Syrian Armed Forces are attempting to recapture a large chunk of territory they lost to the aforementioned Islamist group.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces were able to repel Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s (Jaysh Al-Fateh’s largest faction) three day long assault on the Al-Mansoura Grain Silos after a series of intense firefights that ended with the Islamist rebels retreating to the southern perimeter of Al-Mansoura.

Following the Syrian Armed Forces’ success at the Al-Mansoura Grain Silos, the Syrian Arab Army’s 45th Regiment carried out an assault on Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s defenses at Al-Mansoura’s southern perimeter, resulting in a violent exchange between the two parties before the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Helicopter Gunships entered the battle.

The Russian Air Force’s choppers and fighter jets pounded Jaysh Al-Fateh’s positions at Al-Mansoura, Al-Ziyarah, Al-Sirmaniyah, Al-Ghaniyah, Jisr Al-Shughour, and Al-Frikka, killing scores of enemy combatants and destroying several armored vehicles.

Finally, after the Russian Air Force fractured Jaysh Al-Fateh’s frontline defenses at Al-Mansoura, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to clear the aforementioned town and impose full control of it before nightfall on Sunday.
