BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – The rebel forces launched a fresh attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southeast Daraa tonight. 

According to a military source in the government stronghold of Izra’a, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their allies launched a powerful attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Barid Checkpoint that is located near the Sweida-Daraa axis.

The source added that the rebel forces managed to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the Barid Checkpoint; this prompted the government to send reinforcements from Sweida City to this front.

Not long after the rebel forces infiltrated their positions at the Sweida-Daraa axis, the Syrian Arab Army launched a counter-attack to retake the checkpoint and secure this area.

A number of militants were killed and wounded during the brief rebel assault, including several members of the Free Syrian Army and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

The rebel attack was launched in response to the Syrian Arab Army’s large-scale offensive in northeast Daraa, which has already yielded big gains for the government.

“Several towns and villages in W. #Daraa, under #FSA control, have now made contacts with #Russia enquiring about conditions set for accepting ‘reconciliation’. Allegedly, several ‘separate’ deals tba.”
