Hawzah News Agency (Dara'a, Syria) - ISIL-affiliated Jeish Khalid bin Walid began the assault by storming the FSA positions on the outskirts Heet, which is a town that has been at the front-line of the battle for Western Dara’a for over a year.
According to pro-opposition activists in Dara’a, heavy clashes are ongoing between the two rival groups in Heet, with the ISIL(or Daesh) terrorists still on the offensive this morning.
The ISIL claims they seized two points from the Free Syrian Army, while also killing at least five rebel fighters.
ISIL often advances at this axis in West Dara’a, but they later retreat after rebels launch a counter-assault.
Last week, the Syrian army forwarded a large number of fresh forces and a large volume of military hardware to the Southern part of the country to kick off a massive operation against terrorists in Dara'a province.
A large part of the fresh troops have deployed in Quneitra province.
In the meantime, local sources reported that a fresh round of infighting and differences covered Southern Syria, adding that the militants are not capable of controlling the security situation in their region.
The sources further said that six people were killed in infighting among terrorists in the town of Seida.
The source went on to say that a group of the Free Syrian Army stormed al-Basha'er University in the town of Nawa in Northwestern Dara'a, injuring a student.
