BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched another powerful assault on the Al-Manishiyah District of Dara’a City, capturing large chunks of this area after a fierce battle.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham originally began their assault at the Al-Manishiyah District on Wednesday, but were later repelled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) by nightfall.

However, on Friday, the jihadist assault finally made significant headway, as they broke-through the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses around the western perimeter of the Al-Manishiyah District, giving them the upper-hand in the battle.

According to a military source from the 5th Armored Division, the jihadist rebels have captured more points inside the district today, putting them in position to seize Al-Manishiyah in the coming days if the Syrian Arab Army does not receive the necessary reinforcements to hold their positions.
