The Syrian Arab Army’s 34th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – launched a powerful assault inside the Al-Lajat Plateau of the Dara’a Governorate, capturing a significant amount of territory from the Free Syrian Army’s “Al-‘Umri Brigades” after a day filled with intense firefights in southern Syria.

According to a military source in the city of Izra’a, the Syrian Armed Forces stormed the Free Syrian Army controlled town of Al-Tabbah on Tuesday morning, where they would capture a number of sites from the enemy combatants before they were able to impose full control over this area in the Al-Lajat Plateau on the border of the Al-Sweida Governorate.

The source further added that the Syrian Armed Forces killed a confirmed 18 enemy combatants from the Free Syrian Army; meanwhile, the SAA, NDF, and PLA suffered a total of 8 soldiers’ killed-in-action (KIA) and another 4 wounded during the firefights at Al-Tabbah.

To the southwest of the Al-Lajat Plateau, the joint forces of the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades” – led by Jaysh Al-Yarmouk, Firqa Fallujah Houran, Jaysh Al-Yarmouk, and Liwaa Thawar Souriya – attempted to break-through the Syrian Arab Army’s frontline defenses inside and on the outskirts of the provincial capital; however, they were unsuccessful at a number of sites, including Al-Na’imi and tal Za’tar.
