The strategic hilltops in south-western Syria’s Daraa province have reportedly been seized by the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces during their ongoing advance on Al-Nusra Front militants.
The Syrian Army, jointly with the country’s National Defense Forces, have managed to capture the strategic hilltops of Koum Aqre, located in south-western Syria’s Daraa province, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.

Dozens of Al-Nusra terrorists were killed during heavy clashes with Syrian troops who stormed the militants’ positions on the Koum Aqre hilltops near the strategic towns of Kufer Shamis and Al-Shaykh Maskin.

The seizure of the hilltops paved the way for opening a new front against the militants in Syria’s western areas, FARS reported.
