Pro-militant media sources dissiminate a fresh infographics allegedly depicting the casuatlies of the Syrian army during clashes in the Manshiyah neighborhood of the city of Daraa in southwestern Syria.
According to the infographics, 30 government troops, including 12 officers, had been killed, 2 battle tanks, two 23mm guns and a buldozer belonging to the Syrian army had been destroyed. The joint forces of the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) had allegedly captured a 14,5mm gun and tank projectiles.
Meanwhile, sporadic firefights have been ongoing in Manshiyah. Since launching an advance in the area earlier this month, the joint militant forces have seized a number of building from government troops. But the militant advance faced a deadlock and now sides are engaged in a positional warfare in an urban area.
