The Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Division has captured the entire West District of Sheikh Miskeen after violent clashes with the Syrian Revolutionaries Front (SRF) and Jabhat Al-Nusra over the last three days. The 5th Division is now in full control of the East and West Districts of Sheikh Miskeen, as the SRF has retreated to the nearby village of Da’el in the Dara’a Governorate. Despite this success in the west, Jabhat Al-Nusra is still holding their positions in the North District, where the 5th Division is attempting to infiltrate the militant frontline defenses.

So far, the SAA has not penetrated through the Al-Nusra Front fortifications in the North District; however, the Syrian Air Force has been aiding their entrenched comrades with a multitude of airstrikes on enemy positions in Sheikh Miskeen. According to a military source, the 5th Division has killed over 60 militants during the violent firefights. He also added that the SAA has suffered 13 casualties, with the majority of deaths coming from the initial attack on Sunday morning.
