Earlier this week, the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades” launched a large-scale offensive dubbed “Operation Death Triangle” inside northwestern Dara’a in order to recapture several sites that were seized by the Syrian Armed Forces during the latter’s successful assault in the “Dara’a Triangle” last year.

The Free Syrian Army began their assault from the small town of Kafr Nisaj, where they had been involved in a number of heated clashes with the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division in the past.

With their sights set on the imperative village of Deir Al-‘Adas, the Free Syrian Army attempted to clear the area of government soldiers and retake the small hilltops that were situated to the east of Kafr Nisaj.

However, the Free Syrian Army was just unable to bypass the stiff defenses of the Syrian Armed Forces after several attempts to recapture the main road from Kafr Nisaj to Deir Al-‘Adas.

The offensive was doomed to fail in the end because of their lack of tanks and armory to combat the powerful weapons of the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division.

Recently, much of the Syrian Arab Army’s success inside the Dara’a Governorate is due to the absence of enemy tanks; this has allowed for the government forces to overwhelm the rebels with sheer firepower.
