Government forces launched an operation to retake the strategic southern province of Dara’a two weeks ago.
The Syrian Arab Army’s 9th Armored Division and Hezbollah (Party of God) continue to advance in northern Dara’a with the capture of Himrit and Al-Sultaniyah.
In less than twenty-four hours, the 9th Division together with Hezbollah have secured five villages.
Fierce clashes have claimed the lives of 25 militants belonging to the Al Qaeda-affiliated “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Al-Nusra Front).
The besieged Kafr Nissaj is now completely surrounded after the contingent from the 9th Division declaring the town of Sibsiba under complete Syrian Army control.
