The artillery and missile units shelled the positions and movements of Al-Nusra in Dara’a al-Balad district in the Southern part of Dara’a city and in the town of al-Na’eimeh in Eastern Dara’a, destroying 8 vehicles and a command post and killing a large number of terrorists.
In the meantime, the artillery units targeted Al-Nusra’s movements and concentration centers along a road connecting al-Qariyeh al-Qarbi region to the power plant, killing a number of militants and destroying five vehicles and two positions of the terrorists.
A military source confirmed on Saturday that the army soldiers managed to repel continued attacks of Al-Nusra terrorists on pro-government forces’ positions in the Southern neighborhoods of Dara’a city and in a later counteroffensive captured important positions in narrow alleys and buildings in al-Manshiyeh.
The source added that the army’s advances will provide enough military coverage for the government forces for their operation in the city.
They went on to say that although Al-Nusra’s snipers had slowed down the army soldiers’ advances in the Southern part of the city, the Syrian and Russian fighter jets’ raids destroyed most snipers’ positions.
