The Islamic State launched its first attack against the Syrian Arab Army in the Daraa Governorate town of Sheikh Miskeen on Tuesday.
As a result of this attack, the Syrian Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) sustained several casualties in their ranks.
Jaysh Khaled bin Walid’s attack against the Syrian Army comes just a week after the Syrian and Russian air forces launched several airstrikes on their positions near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights region.
The Syrian Army and Jaysh Khaled bin Walid have barely clashed during this seven year long war because the aforementioned terrorist group has been confined to a large pocket within the rebel-held areas of the Daraa and Al-Quneira governorates.
However, since the rebels agreed to handover Da’el, ‘Ibtaa and Tafas, the Syrian Army has reached the terrorist group’s front-lines in the Daraa Governorate.
