BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The US-backed rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) launched a counter-offensive in the eastern countryside of the Al-Sweida Governorate, Friday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the Zuluf Dam.
The Free Syrian Army launched the attack against the Syrian Arab Army on Friday morning, striking the eastern outskirts of the Zuluf Dam outskirts.
Despite the intensity of the assault, the Free Syrian Army failed to recapture any territory from the Syrian Arab Army and their allies in eastern Al-Sweida on Friday.
According to a military source in Al-Sweida, the Syrian Arab Army managed to foil all of the Free Syrian Army’s attacks, including the main assault on the Zuluf Dam.
The Syrian Arab Army and their allies will likely resume their offensive in the coming hours, as they look to secure the the Sweida-Homs border.
