The Syrian Arab Army successfully laid an ambush in Houran near Brigade 112 Base, eliminating a large group of militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra in the Dara’a countryside. The ambush took place this morning, around 8:30 A.M. Damascus Time, after a Syrian Arab Army drone captured footage of a large convoy of Al-Nusra Front members heading in the direction of Houran.

As the convoy approached an enclosed area, the SAA opened fire, destroying the enemy vehicles loaded with 23mm machine gun turrets. Unable to regroup, Jabhat Al-Nusra attempted to retreat south where they were met with fierce resistance from SAA soldiers that cutoff the road. The Al-Nusra Front militants refused to surrender, leaving the SAA with no choice but to fight until the last fighter was dead.

The leader of the group, Abu Mohammad Al-Hourani, was killed during the battle, along with 30 other members of the Al-Nusra Front. The other Al-Nusra Front members killed in the ambush were Jamal Mustafa, ‘Aamer Malih, and Talal Bayazeed. According to a military source, most of the militants did not have any documentation on them; however, they are believed to have originated from Jordan.
