Before the start of the assault, Osman, in which the militants were seated at once by several terrorist groups, was taken into a tight ring. After the artillery preparation and a series of point airstrikes on the positions of terrorists, the advanced groups of the Syrian special forces began an assault operation.
The city of Osman is of strategic importance. It is located on the highway connecting the capital of Syria with the administrative center of Dar'a province - the city of the same name. The militants used this road to transfer personnel, military equipment and ammunition between the provinces. If Osman is taken under control by the Syrian military, another route exploited by terrorists will also be cut, and in addition, the way will be opened for the complete liberation of the southern province of Syria.
