Syrian Air Force attack helicopters bombed positions and vehicles of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in the western countryside of Daraa.
Attack helicopters carried out 18 strikes and destroyed the headquarters and armored vehicles of the Al-Haq Division and HTS positions in Ash’ari, Jisr al-Ash’ari, Mzareeb and Al-Ajmi villages.
HTS and its allies again tried to attack SAA positions in Al-Bath city in Quneitra. However, the SAA have managed to prevent them from achieving any gains. It’s worth mentioning that SAA only lost one point during the last attack south of Al-Ba’ath. According to sources in the SAA, government forces are now working to recapture the point.
The Israeli Air Force targeted the SAA for the fourth time in less than a week. The Israeli warplane destroyed an SAA gun south of Al-Ba’ath city.
The Israeli Army once again claimed that the strike was a response after a mortar fired from the Syrian side fall inside the Israeli-controlled territories.
If the SAA achieves success in defeating HTS and its allies in Al-Ba’ath, the SAA may launch more operations in Daraa city or in Al-Ba’ath soon.
