Members of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham(HTS) and allied militant groups captured the strategic bloc of Al-Salkhidi east of the Al-Manshiyya district after intense clashes with the Syrian Army yesterday. HTS-led forces reportedly killed 11 Syrian soldiers during the clashes in the Al-Manshiya district during these developments.
At the same day, Hezbollah’s media wing announced that the Syrian Army and its allies repelled the HTS-led attack in Al-Manshiyeh. The media outlet also released a video showing Syrian Army troops pounding militant positions in Al-Manshiyeh with heavy rockets. The Syrian Army used ATGMs to target HTS points in the district. Syrian attack helicopters also targeted HTS fighters in the area.
In another development, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced that the villages of Tseil, Mazra’a and Adwan in the western countryside are a closed military zone.
According to many opposition sources, it is expected that the FSA, supported by Jordan and the US-led coalition, will launch a military operation against the Al-Khaled Army in the area soon.
Several Arab media outlets reported that the FSA in Daraa has already received ammunition and equipment from the US-led coalition and Jordan for this goal.
However, it appears that all these ammunition and equipment are currently being used against the Syrian Army in the city of Daraa while the western Daraa countryside is witnessing calm with ISIS.
