(By SouthFront) ~ The Syrian Arab Army repelled the al-Nusra offensive aimed to cut-off the main supply route from Sweida to Damascus. Al-Nusra mercenaries attempted to advance East from the al-Lajat Plateau in the Dara’a province towards the Khalkhalah Military Airport. However, militants were unable to bypass the SAA’s defenses near Dama.
The SAA and its allies supported by the Russian Air Force are continuing to advance on Palmyra clashing with ISIS militants. At the moment, the Syrian froces are in about 6 km from Palmyra’s southwestern gates. The main clashes are ongoing in the area of Daesh training camp at the Qatari Royal Villa.
Separately, Russian warplanes targeted Daesh oil facilities near the strategic town of Al-Sukhanah in the province of Homs.
