“Ajnad Al-Sham launched a new offensive inside the strategic town of Darayya to reopen the road between Darayya and Mo’adhamiyeh,” the sources said, adding, “At first, Ajnad al-Sham captured 9 points from the Syrian soldiers between Darayya and Mo’adhamiyeh, but the Syrian Armed Forces launched a counter-attack took back the lost 9 points.”
“Ajnad al-Sham suffered a heavy death toll, including 2 of the group’s military commanders in the failed attacks,” the sources said.
