Intense Fighting Erupts In Daraa As "Moderate Opposition" Announces New Assault Against Syrian Army

Intense fighting is now ongoing in the Syrian city of Daraa, the provincial capital of the Daraa province.

In the morning on February 12, members of the so-called “moderate opposition” and their al-Qaeda linked firends launched an assault on the Manshiyah neighbourhood of Daraa which was under the control of the Syrian army.

According to reports members of the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) were the main striking force of the “opposition” in this attack.

The declared goal of the assault is to retake the whole city from pro-government forces. Pro-militant sources argue that “opposition forces” are pushed to respond to “numerous violations of the ceasefire” by the army and its allies.

Since morning, clashes have been ongoing in the southern part of the Manshiyah neighbourhood. Sides use small arms, mortars and artillrey.

There are no confirmed reports about casualties among the opposing sides.

Southern part of the country was very calm for a long time, its the only part of syria where this mysterious “FSA” organisation still has atleast some influence (they’re totally wiped out in greater idlib emirate, where Tahrir Al-Sham, Ahrar Al-Sham and Liwa al-Aqsa fight over supply routes and population centers with eachother)

I think its time to wipe out FSA for good, UK, outgoing islamist french president, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have hidden behind these letters for far too long!

These gys should first learn how to hold Kalshnikov. Only 1 of them does it good.
