Following advances in the Deraa al-Bilad district yesterday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shifted its military attention to the embattled Al-Manshiyah neighborhood on Monday.

Subsequently, infiltration units of the SAA’s 5th Division of the Republican Guard seized 4 building blocks northwest of the Al-Manshiyah bakery in the morning hours, thus almost fully reversing advances secured by Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham and Southern Front in February.

The SAA offensive is supported by the National Defence Forces (NDF), 15th Division special forces and a Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary) contingent.

Al-Masdar News was unable to obtain information regarding casualties on either side; nevertheless, Syrian and Russian warplanes pounded militant-held areas of the city throughout the day.
