BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a massive offensive inside the Dara’a Governorate on Sunday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions inside the Al-Manishiyah District of the provincial capital.
While Sunday didn’t produce positive results, the jihadist rebels were able to make significant progress on Monday, seizing a large part of the Al-Manishiyah District before nightfall.
However, since their large advance on Monday, the jihadist rebels have been to make any serious gains; this is mostly due to the recent deployment of Syrian Arab Army reinforcements from the city of Izra’a.
On Wednesday, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham were able to seize some points in the northeastern part of the district, but this advance was later reversed after a swift counter-attack by the Syrian Arab Army.
