Daraa - SMART 

On Sunday, loyalist and Russian warplanes bombed towns and cities in Eastern Daraa, Southern Syria, killing and wounding civilians.

Amer Abazeid, the director of the media office of the Civil Defense in Daraa, told SMART that the raids on the town of al-Sawara (21 kilometers northeast of Daraa) killed two civilians and wounded others. A similar raid wounded two civilians in the city of al-Hurak and three civilians in the town of Karak al-Sharqi.

The Civil Defense stated that from their surrounding bases, the Syrian government forces launched heavy artillery and mortar shells on the towns and villages of Daraa's eastern countryside and the neighborhood of Raq al-Sad in the city of Daraa. The government forces also targeted the city of Basr al-Harir using surface-to-surface missiles from the bases of the 79th Division near the town of Jabbab.

Abazeid also stated that Syrian government helicopters dropped six explosive barrels on the city of Basr al-Harir, two barrels on the village of Jiddal and four barrels on the village of Majedel in the region of al-Lujat.

Earlier on Sunday, Russia joined the battle launched by the Syrian government forces and allied militias by launching airstrikes on cities, towns and villages in the Eastern Daraa governorate.

The Syrian government forces launched a military campaign in the eastern countryside of Daraa and the western countryside of as-Suwayda one week ago. The military campaign has been accompanied by air, artillery and heavy missile shelling, and has so far killed and injured dozens of civilians, including women and children. The shelling also destroyed about 40 percent of the city of al-Hurak and 60 percent of the town of al-Mulieha Sharqiya. Tens of thousands of civilians have been displaced from their villages.

The Syrian government forces brought in military reinforcements to launch the military operation in the governorate, which is part of the de-escalation agreement reached by Russia (the main supporter of the Syrian government), the United States and Jordan.
