The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” has sent a massive wave of reinforcements to the Dara’a Governorate to combat the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah (Party of God) offensive, as the former struggles to maintain their ground around Tal Al-Harra.

Dara’a:

The SAA’s 7th Mechanized Division continued to pound the militants of Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army’s 1st Brigade at Kafr Shamis, destroying a weapons hub near Tal Al-‘Antar before nightfall on Sunday.

Northwest of Kafr Shamis, the SAA’s 9th Armored Division and Hezbollah attacked Jabhat Al-Nusra positions at the southwestern corner of Kafr Nissaj, killing 17 confirmed militants, including Isma’eel Nour al-Deen Jameel, ‘Ammar Mohannad Abu Rayyan, Hadi Yousif Al-Shameer, Khaled Sa’eed Al-Hariri, and Bassam Mohammad Al-Ahmad.

Fierce clashes were reported at city of Inkhil between the SAA’s 5th Armored Division and contingents from the FSA; however, both sides were unable to make any progress.

Al-Quneitra:

Hezbollah targeted a large Jabhat Al-Nusra contingent south of SyriaTel Hill in the town of Mosahra, advancing their positions despite the rough weather the last two days.

In conjunction with the Hezbollah attack at Mosahra, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) conducted 9 airstrikes in the town of Mosahra, succoring their allies by weakening the militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 9th Division assisted Hezbollah with an attack of their own on the Kom Al-Basha-Naba’ Al-Sakhar Road, killing 11 militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra before securing part of the road to Mosahra.
