Local gunmen respond to regime security crackdown in Al-Sanamayn by attacking regime positions in east and west Daraa
Daraa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Syrian Observatory activists say that popular resentment has been significantly growing in different areas in Daraa province, against the backdrop of the recent developments in Al-Sanamayn city. Clashes are still underway inside the city between former fighters of the factions on one hand, and regime forces and loyalists armed with heavy weapons as well as tanks on the other.
According to SOHR sources, opposition former fighters attacked the checkpoint of Jilin Housing, west of Daraa, and controlled it, captured two regime soldiers in Al-Karak Al-Sharqi town, blocked the routes to Daraa city from the side of its western countryside, and clashed with regime forces in a security detachment in Tafas town.
Those separate attacks come as a response to the regime security campaign on Al-Sanamayn city.
SOHR activists have documented the killing of three civilians, including a child, due to the regime ground offensive and shelling on Al-Sanamayn city.
