12 June 2017 18:08

 

Heavy fighting continues to rip through the provincial capital of Daraa as the Syrian Army carries out a major offensive against the Syrian al-Qaeda branch, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, and other FSA groups.

Today, the Army’s assault targeted the anti-government militants in the city’s Palestinian Refugee Camp; a longtime bastion for the hardline jihadists. For the first time, the government managed to enter the Camp and seize over 50% of its overall area, including the well-known neighborhood where several schools and education facilities are located.

The progress inside the rebels’ stronghold was propelled by heavy and non-stop artillery and missile shelling as well as devastating airstrikes. Other rebel positions in Daraa al-Balad and Tareeq al-Sad (Dam Road) came under attack as well.
