BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – Not long after the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 5th Armored Division launched a counter-assault in Dara’a City on Tuesday night that targeted the jihadist defenses inside the Al-Manishiyah District.

However, as dawn approached the provincial capital, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham managed to not only repel the assault, but they also launched their own counter-attack in Al-Manishiyah.

According to a military source in Dara’a, the jihadist rebels have once again taken control of 70 percent of Al-Manishiyah, leaving only the northern corridor of the district in the hands of the Syrian Arab Army.

While the jihadist rebels do control most of the district, they are finding it difficult to advance in the last quarter of Al-Manishiyah; this is due to the Syrian Arab Army’s stiff defenses and heavy airstrikes conducted by their Russian allies.

They have been given a game-changing new US missile system, like a smaller variant of TOS-1. Newly developed weapon, the NDF or even the SAA cannot counter it.
Russia must find an answer to this escalation from the US.
