DARA’A, SYRIA – Rebels from 16 different FSA-affiliated factions formed the Nawa Operations Room in attempt to quell the ISIS-linked Jaish Khaleb Ibn al-Walid’s advances in the western countryside of Dara’a province.

Some 31 rebel fighters were killed by the terror group in the disastrous counterattack on Jamou Hill the previous day bringing up the total death toll due to clashes with ISIS to a minimum of 174 casualties since the latter group launched its blitz offensive on February 20.

A local source informed AMN that the reason Jaish Khaled Bin al-Walid does not suffer from manpower shortages even though it had been besieged for over two years in the Sahm al-Golan region is that there is a trend of FSA fighters defecting to the group on a regular basis along with their supplies and weapons.

Should rebels fail to recapture the imperative hilltop of Tal Jamou, ISIS will be in optimal position to strike the Nawa, the largest rebel-held city in southern Syria. The extremist group is now within 2 km of the city’s perimeter.
