The Syrian Army troops fended off a heavy attack of Al Nusra Front on their positions in the Northeastern outskirts of Damascus city.
The al Nusra launched their attack on Tishrin district’s police building, media center building and the district’s hospital. The terrorists started their offensive with RPG rockets, while the group’s snipers were also targeting army soldiers, followed by a raid. But they sustained heavy casualties and pulled back after facing tough resistance and the powerful defense of the Syrian army. Army reports indicated death of, at least, three al Nusra snipers in the clashes.
