Following the liberation of the Mintar hill and Khirbet Saman, the Tiger Forces and the 5th Assault Corps entered the small village of Buwaida controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda).
According to pro-government sources, government forces successfully pushed Hayat Tahrir al-Sham members to retreat from the area. Clashes were also reported in the area northeast of Buwaida.
However, the gains of government forces in the area still have to be confirmed.
