Nusra Terrorists Suffer Heavy Losses in Dara’a
The army troops targeted a position of al-Nusra Front to the Northwest of al-Gharyia al-Gharbyia Bridge on Tuesday night, inflicting heavy losses on them, reports said Wednesday.
There were no immediate reports of casualties among the terrorists.
The Syrian Army, popular forces and Hezbollah fighters have reportedly broken through the defense lines of the militant groups at the entrance of Sheikh Meskeen and have now deployed their units in the town, field sources announced Wednesday.
The sources said that the pro-government forces’ joint massive operation in the Northern part of Dara’a province, which was launched in the early hours of this morning, has thus far brought about significant victories against the militant groups in the strategic town of Sheikh Meskeen.
The sources further added that the Syrian forces and their allies’ rapid advance towards different districts of the town have surprised the militants.
On Sunday, the Syrian Army, National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah fighters stormed militants’ strongholds in the Northern part of Dara’a, and killed at least 37 terrorists.
The pro-government forces carried out successfully the first phase of their large-scale operation in Southern Syria, and seized full control over the Northern part of Sheikh Meskeen.
At least 37 terrorists were killed and many more wounded in the clashes, he added.
The source further added that the Syrian army and its allies are now readying to carry out a new phase of their large-scale operation along Dara’a-Damascus highway.
The pro-government forces also advanced towards al-Qasr al-Ahmar and Sheikh Meskeen’s prison.
