On Thursday, opposition activists claimed that US-led coalition warplanes conducted multiple airstrike on ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khalid in Shajra town in the western Daraa countryside. So far, the US-led collation has not officially confirmed or denied these claims.
The US-led collation destroyed an ISIS jail in Shajra town. 12 people were killed and 10 others were injured as a result of the bombing, according to local sources. The sources added that at least 16 civilian prisoners from al-Baridi family went missing after the airstrike.
Jaish Khaled Leader Wael Obaid “Abu Taim Inkhel” was reportedly killed in one of the US-led collation airstrikes too.
The airstrikes also destroyed a building of the Jaish Khaled Sharia court killing a number of Jaish Khaled sharia judges, according to an opposition activist.
On August 16, Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters launched a security campaign in Nasib town in the southern Daraa countryside near the Syrian-Jordanian border against the local ISIS cell. The campaign came after 23 Jaish al-Islam fighters were killed in an ISIS suicide attack in Nasib on August 12.
