Jabhat Al-Nusra has suffered heavy casualties attempting to take the village of Tal Hamra on the border of Dara’a in the Al-Quneitra Governate. Over 200 militants have been reportedly killed by the Syrian Arab Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) since last Friday, when Jabhat Al-Nusra launched an offensive in Tal Hamra, resulting in the capture of neighboring hills and buildings adjacent to the village.

According to a military source, Regiment 89 of the Syrian Arab Army has participated in this battle, along with members of the civilian-led NDF. The village of Tal Hamra sits approximately 1,075 meters above sea level; which makes capturing the village all the more challenging for the enemy combatants. If Jabhat Al-Nusra captures Tal Hamra, they will have a clear entry into the Dara’a Governate and the ability to besiege the village of Zimreen.

While the offensive has resulted in some gains for Jabhat Al-Nusra, they have suffered very high casualties in the process. The majority Jabhat Al-Nusra fighters besieging the village of Tal Hamra have been unable to retreat due to the barrage of artillery shells and gunfire from the SAA at the top of the hill. As a result, many Jabhat Al-Nusra casualties were left on the battlefield.
