Syrian Army Opens a Supply Route to Sheikh Miskeen


The Syrian Arab Army’s 12th Brigade of the 5th Division has reestablished their supply route in the strategic city of Sheikh Miskeen after swarming Jabhat Al-Nusra positions on Nawa-Al-Dawaar Road and recapturing this area last night. The 12th Brigade killed scores of Jabhat Al-Nusra fighters, including the leader of “Kateeb Ansar Al-Shariah” (Nusra offshoot), Sami Al-Safadi, before announcing the capture of the road.

According to a military source, the SAA’s 175th Brigade is on the outskirts of Nawa, where they look to breach Jabhat Al-Nusra defenses and recapture the surrounding hills overlooking this large city in the Dara’a Governorate. The SAA and Jabhat Al-Nusra are suffering heavy losses at Sheikh Miskeen, while both parties continue their tug-of-war battle for control of the city. The majority of firefights are taking place in the South and East Districts; specifically, near the Sheikh Miskeen Cemetary.

Yesterday, the SAA’s 175th Brigade destroyed 3 captured T-55 tanks used by Jabhat Al-Nusra at Sheikh Miskeen. The tanks were believed to have been captured by Jabhat Al-Nusra in the city of Nawa, where the SAA withdrew from earlier this month.
