Activists said that over 110 pro-regime militants were killed during clashes with the FSA in northwest Dara’a province. Rebels destroyed eight tanks belonging to regime forces and captured four more.
Member of the political committee Muhammed Qaddah confirms that mercenaries of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are spearheading the offensive in Dara’a province, pointing out that the FSA fighters captured Lebanese, Iranian and Afghan mercenaries during the ongoing battles.
Qaddah stresses that morale of the FSA fighters in Dara’a is high and that attempts by regime forces to recapture the areas they lost are doomed to fail.
He renounces the international community’s continued ignoring of the blatant and continuous intervention of Iran and the Hezbollah militia on the side of the Assad regime.
“The FSA fighters in the southern front have proved to the world the extent of adherence to international conventions and international humanitarian law by distancing themselves from extremism. There is no justification for the international community from now on to fail to support the FSA fighters in the southern front and put pressure on Iran to pull its mercenaries out of Syria.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
