The Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces – countered the Free Syrian Army (FSA) units operating inside Dara’a City, targeting the latter’s positions at the Al-Manishiyah and Dara’a Al-Balad Districts of the provincial capital on Monday morning.

According to a military source in the Dara’a Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces captured 10 street blocks along the Al-Manishiyah-Dara’a Al-Balad axis after fierce clashes with the Free Syrian Army fighters; this assault marked the first time in 6 months that the Syrian Armed Forces entered the Dara’a Al-Balad District in south Dara’a City.

North of Dara’a City, the Syrian Armed Forces and Free Syrian Army clashed at the southeastern flank of ‘Itman, where the aforementioned rebel group attempted to advance towards the Syrian Government’s last supply route to the provincial capital; however, they were once again unsuccessful in this military endeavor, as the Syrian Armed Forces fought off the attack.

According to field reports, the Syrian Armed Forces and Free Syrian Army engaged one another in a series of clashes at the towns of Al-Kirak, Khirbat Al-Ghazaleh, Kafr Nissaj, Kafr Shamis, Al-Dilli, Al-Sinameen, and Busra Al-Harir.
