The Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham(HTS) terrorist group carried out intensive strikes on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions in Dara’a’s Manshieh district using missiles and artillery. As a result the SAA was forced to retreat from some points in the area.
HTS claimed that it managed to destroy a tank belonging to the SAA in the Manshiah district and to kidnap a Syrian soldier.
The Hezbollah media wing in Syria released a video showing the SAA targeting an armored bulldozer of HTS on the Garieh-Sayda highway in the eastern Dara’a countryside.

The SAA alsu used heavy Borkan missiles targeting HTS fortifications in the Manshiah distric. The Syrian Air Force targeted the terror group’s positions in the village of Dael in Dara’a’s northern countryside.
In turn, the opposition media published photos showing the residues of a Tochka missile allegedly used by the SAA against a HTS military base in the Dara’a countryside.
According to sources embedded with the SAA inside Dara’a, the SAA repelled the HTS assault after reorganizing its ranks and launched a limited counterattack to recapture the lost points.
