Syrian Army Makes Strategic Gains Inside the Daraa Provincial Capital
Since the genesis of the rebel’s most recent offensive in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, the province of Dara’a has become a hotbed for violence, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) exchange blows with the Syrian Revolutionaries Front (SRF) and the Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) near the Jordanian border with Syria.
The Syrian Arab Army’s 12th Brigade of the 7th Infantry Division conducted numerous operations in Dara’a Al- Mahta over the last 3 days, killing scores of Al-Nusra Front militants near Basra Square, before expanding their control over a number of building blocks in the surrounding neighborhoods of this imperative area.
At the Al-Naziheen Refugee Camp in Dara’a Al-Balad, Syrian Arab Army sappers dismantled a number of mines, while their comrades confiscated a large cache of rockets and mortar shells that belonged Al-Nusra Front fighters. According to a military source, at least a dozen militants were killed and another 9 were wounded during these clashes at the Al-Naziheen Refugee Camp.
