Rebel Commanders Escape Daraa Airstrike Unharmed

Southern Front and Nusra Front commanders have escaped regime airstrikes unscathed after warplanes targeted a rebel-held meeting in Garz on Saturday, a source told Zaman al-Wasl.

According to the source, the meeting between the southern rebel alliance and Al-Qaeda’s Syria wing, the Nusra Front, was seeking to unite the armed opposition groups in an effort to seize control of the strategic city of Daraa.

Meanwhile, at least 10 people, including four children and five women, were killed in regime airstrikes on the border town of Nasib on Saturday, the Syrian Network for Human Rights reported.

Syrian rebel forces in the country's south recently launched Operation Southern Storm, a new offensive aimed at eradicating the presence of regime forces and allied militias in Daraa.
