The terrorists that stormed government forces' positions from the direction of Rakham, Karak and Um Walad in Western Dara'a managed to approach the nearby areas of al-Tha'ala airbase and al-Sheikh Hassan heights, but the Syrian army men repelled their attack, killing 20 militants and wounding several more.

Terrorists' arms and ammunition also sustained major damage in the attack.

Al-Tha'ala airbase is located in Western Dara'a. In case al-Tha'ala and al-Darah regions are lost, the al-Tha'ala airbase will be threatened by militants, who will alos be able to threat Sweida city.

Also, Syrian soldiers targeted positions of ISIS terrorists and Fatah al-Sham Front in the Southern provinces of Sweida and Dara'a, inflicting a number of casualties on the militants.

The army soldiers targeted the gatherings and movements of ISIS terrorists in al-Qasr village, some 40 km Northeast of Sweida city, leaving a number of terrorists dead or injured and destroying two military vehicles, FNA reports.
