Reports said on Monday that the al-Nusra Front has retreated its militants from strongholds in the two provinces of Dara’a and al-Quneitra after sustaining heavy casualties in Syrian army raids.
The sources said that the Nusra terrorists’ concentration centers in al-Hirak-al-Mlaiha in the Northeastern countryside of Dara’a were raided by the army men, which resulted in the killing and wounding of dozens of the fighters.
Also, a long convoy of the terrorists’ vehicles in the Western side of Aqraba town in the area of Jaidour Howran was targeted by the army.
In al-Quneitra countryside, a number of terrorists from al-Nusra Front, Ahrar al-Sham Movement, and al-Furqan Brigades were killed in a special operation carried out by an army unit against their gatherings in Mas’hara village in the Eastern countryside of the province, the military source added.
The Syrian Army and government have defended their country against insurgents since 2011 when a huge number of foreign terrorists flocked to the Middle-Eastern country.
In spite of certain western states’ military and financial supports for the militants, the Syrian troops have been able to push them back from many areas across the country.
Military estimates show the fall of militancy in Syria is not far.
