Syrian Army Repels Al-Qaeda-Led Attack On Daraa, Up To 40 Militants Killed

Donate

The Syrian army repelled an assault of 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) in the provincial capital of the Daraa province.

Militants attacked government positions in the Manshiyah neighbourhood earlier today, but suffered heavy casualties and were pushed to retreat. Pro-government sources report that up to 40 members of Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and the FSA’s Southern Front were killed in clashes.

This was the biggest escalation in the area in the recent months. The militants had used suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices during their assault. This clearly indicated the level of “moderation” of the “opposition groups” involved in the operation.
