Information Agency SANA leads a fragment of the statement of the Syrian General Ali Mayhuba
The units of the Syrian armed forces, in cooperation with the national militia groups and with the support of the Russian armed forces and the Syrian air forces, took full control of Sheikh Miskin and the northern neighborhood of Daraa (the administrative center of the province of the same name). As a result of successful actions, the deployment area of the 82 Brigade, as well as the Alish height area, was taken under full control.
Taking the Sheikh-Miskin helps the Syrian army to develop an offensive while controlling the prevailing heights and main roads in the area. In addition, the control of Sheikh Miskin allows cutting transport links of militant groups in the provinces of Daraa and Damascus.
