Militants of the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) shelled Marj al-Rahil air base with more than 60 Grad rockets.
The militants launched rockets from the Tal Musaitaba area controlled by the US-led coalition and its proxies east of Damascus.
The FSA claimed that six helicopters at the air base were destroyed as a result of the shelling. However, sources from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) said that only one out of service helicopter was damaged and a small ammo depot was destroyed.
SAA helicopters bombed Al-Lujat area in the northern Daraa countryside.
The Syrian Air Force continued targeting the positions of the FSA and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the Daraa al-Balad area and the Al-Naziheen camp in Daraa City.
Meanwhile, HTS fighters managed to hit a T-72 tank of the 4th Armoured Division in the Al-Naziheen camp area.
Accoording to the Italian news agency (AKI), the Free Syrian Army in Daraa was supplied with attack drones. These drones are controlled from the Syrian-Jordanian border area south of Daraa city and were used during the battles of Daraa city against the SAA tanks. The drones are believed to be the American-made Switchblade suicide drones.
