On Thursday morning, Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) launched a powerful assault in the northern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at Kafr Nisaj and Tal Qareen.

However, despite the intensity of their attack, the jihadists were unable to penetrate the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses; this would result in a large number of casualties for Jabhat Al-Nusra and their affiliates, including the Nusra field commander “‘Umar Abu Bakr.”

According to a military source at the 5th Armored Division Headquarters in Izra’a, the Syrian Armed Forces foiled every attack that was conducted by the jihadist rebels, including the powerful assault on Tal Qareen.
