The army soldiers, under cover by artillery and missile fire, stormed terrorists in Northwestern Dara’a and managed to capture the town of al-Mall and its surrounding strategic hills.
Also, other units of the army engaged in fierce clashes with the terrorists and freed the village of Aqraba and Tal al-Mahis region South of the town of Namer.
Field source, meantime, said that the army has thus far liberated a large part of terrorist-held regions in the Death Triangle in Dara’a province.
They went on to say that the army soldiers are about to impose full control over the Northwestern part of Dara’a province, adding that the army is readying to push terrorists back from the borderline with the Golan Heights held by the terrorists.
Earlier reports said that the army soldiers engaged in a tough battle with terrorists near the township of Mas’hara at the border with Dara’a province and managed to take control over Tal Mas’hara.
In the meantime, the army’s artillery and missile units pounded terrorists’ supply lines in Tal Mas’hara.
At least 20 militants were killed and a large volume of their equipment was damaged in the army operation.
Also, the army’s engineering units started carrying out cleansing operation in the region and fortified their positions to pave the ground for further advances against terrorists.
Tal Mas’hara is of strategic importance in the region whose fall to the government force will trigger a domino effect in the collapse of terrorist-held regions in Quneitra province.
