Islamist groups in the southern district of Sheikh Sa’eed managed to hold their positions against a fresh offensive launched by the government forces and its allies.

Fierce battles erupted in the southern district; a longtime bastion for hardline militants from Jaysh al-Fateh (Army of Conquest), which has lost dozens of fighters in the ongoing battles.

The Salafist movement of Ahrar al-Sham mourned its top military commander Abu al-Hareth al-Halabi, who was killed today while fighting the Syrian Army in Sheikh Sa’eed.

However, the jihadi groups still hold their most important positions inside the district even though they’ve lost several fighters and points in the process.
