Syrian government forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, have launched a counter-attack on jihadi groups positioned in Al-Manshiyah district in the southern province of Daraa.

Led by al-Qaeda-affiliate in Syria, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, the militants managed to take over several checkpoints and buildings for the Syrian Army in a massive offensive, using several VBIRDs to break into the Army’s defensives.

However, the government troops initiated, today, a counter-attack to restore the lost points inside the Al-Manishiyah District.

The Army’s attack was significantly supported by the Russian fighter jets which conducted over 20 airstrikes on the Islamist rebels.
