The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and allied units of the Free Syrian Army [switched to the government side earlier] repelled a large attack by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in southern Syria, the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria said in a statement on June 25.

“Over the past 24 hours, in the southern de-escalation zone the militants of the Jabhat al-Nusra (terror group, outlawed in Russia) attacked the settlements, which had voluntarily switched to the legitimate government’s side. The government forces jointly with the formation of the Free Syrian Army repelled the terrorists’ offensive with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces,” the state-run news agency TASS quoted the statement.

According to the statement, pro-govenrment forces killed up to 70 militants and destroyed 3 armored vehicles and 14 pickups carrying the heavy machine guns. The Center added that there were no casualties among SAA servicemen.

The Center added that FSA members in 12 settlements switched their side and joined government forces. These settlements are Al Toubba, Khabab, Khirbat Al Msap, Jerfi, Asem, Sheikh Gharbiya, Sheikh Sharki, Al Shumariya, Hirbat az Zababir, Deir-Dama, Al Shiyakh and Jadel.

The Russian military has allegedy started preparing to deliver humanitarian aid to liberated areas in southern Syria.

Meanwhile, the SAA and the Tiger Forces entered the village of Busra al-Harir northeast of the city of Daraa. However, they have not been able to establish control of the  town. If Busra al-Harir is liberated, the entire area north of it will be cut off from the rest of the militant-held part of the province of Daraa and will likely be liberated soon.

  • 70 Orcs now being jabbed with Shaitan’s red hot pitchfork as they are marched into Hell! :D

    • Gregory Casey

      They ran from the pitchforks Richard ……… afraid! but so stupid that they ran straight into the flames and discovered there was no welcoming Allah only Shaitan continuing to chase them in the flames:)

    • Merijn

      They go in Pairs of 70…. are those folks Shaitan’s 72 Virgins…to be used by Him as Sex-Slaves?

  • jako

    72 virgin goats are ready and willing waiting for Muslim killing Jihad warriors

    Great victory SAA everything is going just fine!
    Better than expected.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    I was under the impression HTS was all but useless here with only a handful of fighters and no heavy weapons, never mind, they won’t be here for long, bye bye.
    Bomb them into oblivion.

    • jorge

      HTS controls around 35% of the green zone in Daraa and Quneitra. It’s the takfiri group that controls more territory there.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Not since January this year they haven’t, it’s probably gone down to less than 5% of both the territories, probably more like 3% and that was in Daraa.
        They currently have 7,000 to 10,000 fighters in Syria in total and that’s the official estimate from 2 months ago. With all the defeats they’ve had in Aleppo and Idlib, fighting both the SAA and the FSA, as well as the continual Russian bombardments and the growing number of assassinations, I doubt that official figure is 7,000 to 10,000 anymore, I’ll bet a few thousand have been shaved off in the last 2 months.
        The last estimates were that HTS had only between 500 to a thousand fighters left here at all, and I suspect that’s why the areas fell so quickly to the SAA. They haven’t had any real fighting here for nearly 12 months so the bulk of their fighters would be in Idlib and Aleppo where they’re fighting for their lives. Even if we take the max estimate of 10’000, I don’t think they’d have any more than 10% of them tied up here when they’ve been needed elsewhere. I don’t think we’ll see too much more from HTS, they can’t bus in recruits from elsewhere. The fact they’re begging the FSA [who they’re fighting elsewhere] to coordinate with them says it all.

            SF is not the best for relaying info correctly so don’t rely on them for your data.
            That 40% is misleading, it seems to imply that HTS is the bulk of the force fighting here when in fact they’re now one of the smallest groups here. The FSA make up probably 70% or more of the forces the the SAA will be fighting here, maybe 5000 fighters, and the rest are made up of 4 or 5 Arab militias, a couple of thousand fighters at most, 2 crappy anti Assad Druse militias a few hundred, and as I said and still believe, only 500 to a 1000 HTS here at most. We’ll get the stats in a few days and know for sure anyway, lets see what the numbers really are then.
            That article you referred to is one of the best examples of either intentional or ignorant reporting and why I, and I also suggest you, shouldn’t rely on them for accurate and honest info. Reread that article you referred to me, and then compare it to a few others you can find on exactly the same event in the same timeframe, you’ll see exactly why I say misleading. Actually you probably don’t even have to look at other sites, the next SF article will probably, correctly this time, tell you that the FSA is the bulk of the force that’s occupying that 40% of the territory, not HTS as that moronic article implied. They should sack some of these morons even if they work for free, I see too many articles like that one on SF lately. Cheers.

    i seriously wanna be in the operations room of them satanic jew prick netannayu ….they are definetly now scared shitless…knowing that if SAA frees Daraa area and quinetra area…..golan is next……and if golan falls they are in the deepest trouble since their founding days……….looking at history of those jew pricks..they will surely at sometime engage in the battle….and i seriously hope that they get their satanic jew asses kicked majorly….i bow my head to assad, SAA, and hezbollah for never ever giving up and showing courage,heart,character and steadfastness.I wish i could say the same of those european jew slave countries…foremost germany and france

    • Attrition47

      Netanyahoo isn’t a Jew, he’s a zionist.

      • Sinbad2

        I tend to agree with you, but the majority of Jews have supported Netanyahoo when he was winning. Too late to change sides now defeat is imminent.
        Huge numbers of innocent Germans were slaughtered because of the Nazis, why should Jews be treated any differently?

        • Attrition47

          People can participate in zionism if they want but to traffic in it and claim the stypl and dignity of Jew is patently false, zionism is antithetical to Judaism, which explains the effrontery of these fake Jews in behaving like antisemite stereotypes.

  • as

    It’s too quiet that it’s very suspicious. Something cooked somewhere closer to Russia perhaps ? Usually Israel (and in kind it’s Host) would be very livid. SAA and Russia should keep their vigilance.

  • Joe Dirt

    Hahha if I need a good laugh at poor journalism, I come to Southtard. SAA repal large attack…wtf??? The whole Syrian Civil War has been nothing more than a little skirmish.

    • Nosferatu

      There is no civil war in Syria. There is US/globalists waging war against a nation that refused to be their puppet. Now get lost.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      You are full of bullshit as always Little Squirt this war has never been supported by locals and why they join up with SAA so quickly and are willing to attack NATO in Northern Eastern Syria. HTS and it’s allies are numerous in the south why do you think they are coming from….. well if you guessed Jordan and Israel you win what’s behind door number 4! They are trained in Jordan and Israel surprised IDF don’t chew Khat now but what to do you expect when you recruit streeters smoking crack and meth ,lol!!!!

    • John Whitehot

      u mad bro.

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      10 to 1, a cake walk for the SAA.

    • RamboDave

      500,000 people are dead, probably including about 200,000 brave Syrian Army soldiers, because of this war on Syria, instigated and planned by Israel and it’s Gulf State allies for the purpose of regime change.

      • Joe Dirt

        please share your reference where Israel shot protesters. Thanks!

  • Siegfried
