The Syrian Arab Army’s 9th Armored Division has relentlessly attacked the militants from the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda “Jabhat Al-Nusra” in southern Syria, capturing their seventh town in 48 hours after progressing from Tal Qareen in the north.
According to a military source in the Dara’a Governorate, the 9th Division took control of Rajm Al-Sayid near the besieged town of Kafr Nissaj to the south; this opens up another front to the latter, as Jabhat Al-Nusra faces an assault from 3 points.
In conjunction with their success at Rajm Al-Sayid, the 9th Division was also able to cutoff the Jabhat Al-Nusra supply route to Tal Al-Mal, leading to their eventual attack later in the day.
Southeast of Kafr Nissaj, the SAA’s 7th Armored Division resumed their fierce offensive in the town of Kafr Shamis, as they continued their advance to the besieged Tal Al-‘Antar to the north.
On Sunday, the 7th Division killed 14 militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra north of the Kafr Shamis-Sinameen Road, while also destroying a bulldozer and arms depot in the northern part of the town.
