Syrian Army repels militant attack along Sweida-Daraa axis
[ALMASDARNEWS] A group of armed Lions of Islam launched an attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions along the Dara’a-Sweida axis on Friday, resulting in a fierce firefight for a few hours.
According to a field report from the area, the Lions of Islam attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near the city of Busra al-Sham, prompting the military to call on the National Defense Forces (NDF) from Sweida to help drive back the bad boys.
The report said the Syrian Army and NDF troops were able to fend off the attack after the Lions of Islam failed to infiltrate their positions east of Busra al-Sham.
This latest attack by the Lions of Islam comes at a time when tensions in the Dara’a Governorate are at an year-long high.
