On the ground sources have just confirmed that Sheikh Miskeen has been fully liberated by the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 15th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the SAA’s 7th Armored Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Izra’a.
Just hours ago, the SAA had entered its eastern and northern districts and it was expected the liberation would occur. However, not even on-field sources predicted it would have been this rapid.
It has been reported that Al-Nusra and its allies in the Free Syrian Army are making a rapid evacuation out of Sheikh Miskeen. Unconfirmed reports have stated they are heading towards Nawa.
Over 75 Russian airstrikes in 36 hours weakened terrorist forces defenses in the town.
Terrorist sources claim that the battle is still ongoing in the eastern and northern districts of the town, despite confirmation they were secured hours ago.
The town is situated 20km (12 miles) north of the provincial province Da’ara. Da’ara is close to a major border post between Syria and Jordan and is a major supply line to the terrorist forces operating in Southern Syria.
