The Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division have made rapid advancements in the strategic city of Sheikh Miskeen. It is estimated that only 20% of Sheikh Miskeen is currently occupied by the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
It has been reported that there were over 40 airstrikes and ground-to-ground rockets in the pockets occupied by the terrorist forces. This has resulted in over 20 militants being killed.
This led the way for the Syrian Arab Army to take control of Al-Zaheriyah school and its surrounding buildings in the southern portions of the town.
Along with the taking of the school, the army have also gained control of the Al-Burj town and have pushed to take control of the strategic Sheikh-Nawa road. Surrounding positions and buildings were also liberated.
