DERA’H: What a massacre at Al-Nu’ayma! It happened just before 4:30 a.m. on Friday when the 132nd Brigade of Syria’s 5th Mechanized Armored Division, a part of First Army Corps, laid into Liwaa` Thuwwaar Sooriyya (Brigade of Syria’s Revolutionaries, tee hee hee) and eradicated them and their allies. I had vague reports of this battle on Saturday but waited until the full review came in after a complete battlefield assessment. 4 armored cars with evidence of delivery by the Jordanteezians, 5 pickups with 23mm cannons along with 2 heavy trucks laden with weapons and ammunition were set ablaze. The actual place of battle was at Busra Square east of the White Palace Rest Stop near the Meteorological Observatory Road.
