The Islamist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades” are in serious trouble inside the strategic city of Sheikh Miskeen, as the Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade (5th Armored Division) continues to advance around the Dara’a Governorate’s northern countryside.

On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade – in coordination with the SAA’s 7th Armored Division, the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Izra’a – pushed towards the final district under the control of the Islamist rebels inside Sheikh Miskeen, resulting in another bloody battle between the two opposing parties.

With their backs against the wall in Sheikh Miskeen, the Islamist rebels have once again issued a distress call to their allies in order to have them help push back the pro-government forces advancing inside the city.

According to a military source embedded inside the city of Izra’a (northeastern Dara’a), the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division and their allies (specifically the 7th Armored Division) are in control of 70-75% of Sheikh Miskeen, despite repeated attempts by the Islamist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syriab Army to recapture their lost territory.

The battle for Sheikh Miskeen is currently one of the most important battles taking place inside of Syria; this is due in large part to the vital highway (Quneitra-Sweida Highway) that flows through this city and its surrounding area in the northern Dara’a countryside of southern Syria.

I would imagine Russia radar is watching for a US air strike on SAA positions. I bet the Russian SU30’s are in the air already waiting.
