The army men pulled the country’s flag up in Quneitra border-crossing after years of occupation by the Al-Nusra front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board).
The Al-Nusra terrorists had set fire at the border-crossing before withdrawal towards Idlib under a reconciliation plan.
Other units of the army managed to impose control over the villages of Sheikh Hossein, Kokab, al-Shabraq, Masireteh, al-Lawihaq and Salbak after heavy fighting with terrorists in Southeastern Quneitra and Northwestern Dara’a.
Terrorists suffered heavy casualties and their military equipment sustained major damage in the clashes.
The Syrian army continued clashes against the ISIL terrorists in Hawz al-Yarmouk in Northwestern Dara’a on Thursday, retaking control of the village of al-Mazire’ah and Sad Awan North of the town of Jalin.
Meantime, the Syrian artillery and missile units as well as the air force pounded the terrorists’ positions and moves in the region with repeated attacks.
Also, a military source said that the Syrian army has taken back control of over 18 towns and villages, including the strategic regions, from the ISIL in the past two days, adding that the militants’ defense lines have collapsed.
Reports also said that at least 140 terrorists have been killed and a large number of them were wounded during the army operations in Dara’a in the past week.
