Daraa, Syria− Fighters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) bombed on Friday a regime-held building (taken as basis for military operations) in the Syrian southern city of Busra al-Sham in Daraa province. 

FSA rebels reportedly filled the building’s surrounding area with improvised explosive devices hours before the operation.

Haitham Nassar, civil rights activist based in the city of Daraa, told ARA News that FSA fighters in Busra al-Sham bombed the building −where pro-Assad militants were based− near al-Muhdatha School.

“At least two pro-Assad militants where killed while dozens others were reportedly injured,” Nassar said. 

“The explosion was followed by clashes between both sides, resulting in death of a pro-Assad soldier,” said Nassar. 

In a linked development, the regime forces reportedly shelled gatherings of the opposition forces in the town of Yadodeh in Daraa countryside. 

Meanwhile, local sources reported that the pro-regime helicopters bombed the western neighbourhoods of Busra al-Sham city with explosive barrels and rockets, without recording any casualties.
