DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6: 20 P.M.) – Jihadi groups in the southern province of Daraa failed to advance in the al-Manshiyah district after their assault was repelled by the Syrian Army.

The offensive, which was spearheaded by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, has backfired as the attackers lost at least 15 militants, including three field commanders: Bilal Abu Zaid and Abu Hashem al-Tabuki (a Saudi national) of HTS, as well as Moetaz al-Nabwani of the FSA-affiliated Saif al-Haq Regiment (Photos included below).

The attack comes shortly after the ‘de-escalation zones’ deal was enforced in four areas across the war-torn country; including southern Syria.

Russia, one of the three guarantor states of the agreement and a staunch ally of the Syrian government, declared earlier that it will respond to violations of the deal. The Russian fighters jets conducted several airstrikes, targeting gatherings and positions of the rebel groups in Daraa al-Balad.
