DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:00 A.M.) – On Thursday, rebel militants fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) began targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in an eastern Sweida rural area which government forces overran last month.

While the SAA captured the Dakwa region in neighboring Rif Dimashq, FSA factions focused their limited military capabilities on Zuluf village and its dam.

Clashes persisted throughout the day with the frontline raging back and forth for several kilometers during these hours. Nevertheless, the SAA eventually managed to stand its ground despite facing machine-gun fire and anti-tank missiles:


In response to the FSA hostilities, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted over a dozen airstrikes against rebel forces based in Sweida, Rif Dimashq and eastern Homs:

Al-Masdar News was unable to obtain information regarding casualties on either side of the battlefields. With darkness settling over the embattled country, clashes are ongoing between the SAA and US-backed FSA in Sweida, Rif Dimashq and southeastern Homs.
