Nine shells fell in the northern outskirts of Ramtha, located near the Jordan’s border with Syria on Thursday night, eye witnesses reported.

The shells did not lead to casualties as they fell in an uninhabited area, causing minor damages to vehicles, witnesses told Roya correspondents.

The Syrian army’s offensive began on June 19. President Bashar Al Assad has pledged to take back every inch of Syria from terrorists.

Syrian government forces are holding the hill of Sukar and also cut off terrorist supply routes, according to Reuters.

The violent clashes and air raids carried out by Syrian and Russian forces, most notably in Daraa and its countryside, have caused up to 66,000 people to become displaced.

The majority of the displaced fled from eastern Daraa towards the Jordanian border, many of whom remain stranded in the desert area with little access to humanitarian help.
