BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – The rebel forces launched a new assault in the western countryside of the Dara’a Governorate this week, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions near the Heit axis.
Led by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the rebel forces began their assault by attempting to advance west of Heit.
The rebel forces were then confronted by the ISIS-affiliate Jaysh Khaled bin Walid; this would result in a fierce battle that is supposedly still ongoing.
According to opposition activists, their forces have killed at least five Islamic State terrorists, while not mentioning their own casualties.
The Free Syrian Army and ISIS have been involved in several intense clashes over the last two weeks, as both groups attempt to gain the upper-hand in this part of the Yarmouk Basin region of Dara’a.
