At dawn on Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the 7th Mechanized Division – have launched a full-scale assault on the Southern Front’s defensive positions at the imperative town of Kafr Shamis in the northwestern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate.

The Syrian Armed Forces’ attack on Kafr Shamis came as a surprise for the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades, as the aforementioned group was reportedly caught off-guard by the assault due to a long night of celebrating Islamic Eid.

According to a military source at the nearby city of Deir Al-‘Adas, the Syrian Armed Forces successfully penetrated the Southern Front’s defensive positions at Kafr Shamis; this resulted in the subsequent capture of the northeastern entrance of Kafr Shamis after a series of fierce firefights that included the participation of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra.”

The source added that firefights are still ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and the rebel forces inside Kafr Shamis; however, the SAA’s 15tth Brigade is on the move at the northeastern corridor of this city.

The town of Kafr Shamis is strategically located 9 kilometers from the fortress-city of Al-Harra, which sits on the border of the Al-Quneitra and Dara’a Governorates of southern Syria.
