Syrian Warplanes Hit Hard Terrorists’ Military Positions in Northern Dara’a
The Syrian army tried to prevent a terrorist group from entering a military region in Northern Quneitra.
The terrorists sustained heavy losses during the army’s offensives.
The Syrian army continued to push terrorists back from more regions in Dara’a, and killed a senior commander of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in clashes on Wednesday.
The army units advanced deep into the Dara’a Al-Balad camp and captured the school complex and gas station of the camp after heavy clashes with Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) terrorists.
Meantime, the Syrian air force also heavily pounded the terrorists’ military positions in Dara’a al-Balad and al-Atisheh.
Commander of Tahrir Houran Brigade affiliated to the Free Syrian Army Issa al-Mosalemeh was killed in clashes with the army.
A military source pointed to the Syrian army’s strategic advances in Dara’a and dominance over the air defense battalion and Tal al-Thalileh, and said that if the Syrian army reinforces its positions in these two areas and advances towards the borders with Jordan, it will be able to disconnect the Western and Northwestern parts of Dara’a from the Eastern and Northeastern parts of the province and lay siege on the terrorists from every direction.
The source also said that if the Syrian army reinforces its positions at the air defense battalion, Dara’a al-Balad and al-Monshiyeh will also be liberated.
The Syrian army resumed its military operations against the terrorist groups in Dara’a and made considerable advances by cutting the link between the militants in the Eastern and Western parts of the city on Tuesday.
The resumption of the Syrian army’s military operation came after the ceasefire in the city ended and the Damascus government and the representatives of the terrorist groups did not reach an agreement.
The Syrian army troops managed to take control of the air defense battalion and Tal al-Sailieh after engaging in fierce clashes with the terrorist groups West of Dara’a Balad.
The Syrian troops also managed to win control over a military road in the Western Customs region and disconnected the Eastern and Western Dara’a.
The Syrian army’s artillery and missile units backed up by the country’s air force also pounded the terrorists’ military positions in Tariq al-Assad and al-Makhim camp.
