Terrorist Groups Retreat from Southern Syria after Crushing Defeat in Dara’a
News websites affiliated to the terrorist groups reported that the decision was made after 1,200 militants, including several commanders, were killed and hundreds of others were wounded in clashes with the army and its allies in Dara’a in the last few days.
They also confirmed that the militants’ advance near al-Manshiyeh district in Dara’a city has come to a halt and now the Syrian army has laid siege on the entire district and adjacent areas as the Syrian airstrikes against militants positions still continue.
The news websites reported that the militants are now controlling only a small part of al-Manshiyeh district.
In a latest development on Saturday, Syrian army troops engaged in fierce clashes with al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham in the Southern and Western districts of Dara’a city, killing over 100 terrorists and wounding hundreds more in a sixth day of battle against terrorist groups.
The army soldiers repelled terrorists’ Al-Mawt Va La Al-Mazela operation in the neighborhood of al-Manshiyeh for the sixth consecutive day, killing 110 terrorists, including 13 commanders and wounding 300 more.
The army men also targeted terrorists’ gatherings and movements in Dara’a al-Balad district and Western countryside of the city, destroying several tanks and militant vehicles.
Also, earlier today a senior Syrian security source disclosed that Israel has increased facilities and budget for treating the terrorists who have been injured during the battle with the army and its allies in Syria.
“Jordanian authorities have ruled out reception of the terrorists wounded in Dara’a battle,” the source told FNA on Sunday.
“Therefore, the Zionist regime has boosted the capacity of its hospitals to receive the injured terrorists, specially after their number increased due to continued battles in Southern Syria,” he added.
The source also said that Israeli officials have increased the budget of their hospitals by 26mln Shekels to widen medical support for the terrorists wounded in Syria.
Reports said on Saturday that Israel has established a medical corridor from the Northern part of the occupied Golan to its territories to transfer injured terrorists to its hospitals after terrorists sustained heavy casualties in their failed attacks on Syrian Army positions across Dara’a city in recent days.
The terrorist groups have been using a medical-logistical corridor set up by Israel to transfer their wounded members to Israeli hospitals after Ahrar al-Sham and Al-Nusra Front (recently renamed to Fatah al-Sham Front) sustained heavy casualties in their fresh round of operation codenamed al-Mowt Va La al-Mazelah in the neighborhood of al-Manshiyeh in the Western part of Dara’a city.
The Israeli regime in full coordination with terrorist groups has established a medical-logistical corridor near the Quneitra border in Northern occupied Golan to pave the ground for the easier transfer of injured militants in Syria to Israeli hospital and medical centers in the Northern part of occupied Palestinian territories, including Zeif medical center in Safad and Rambam hospital in Haifa.
Terrorist commanders in Dara’a have allowed all patients even those militants that have not been injured in battlefield to be transferred to Israel to be treated there free of charge.
In the meantime, Israeli soldiers deployed along the medical-logistical corridor have started criticizing their commanders due to Israel’s unprecedented logistical back up for terrorist groups in Syria.
