A massive convoy of reinforcements from the Al-Sweida Governorate arrived in the Golan Heights today after the jihadist rebels mobilized more fighters to launch a 4th offensive.

According to a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) source, the government convoy was made up of fighters from the National Defense Forces (NDF), Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), Jaysh Al-Muwahiddeen (Druze militia), and the 5th Armored Division.

Most of the non-army reinforcements are volunteers from the Al-Sweida Governorate that traveled to the Golan Heights to protect their people from the jihadist rebels.

Similar to Al-Sweida, Jabal Al-Sheikh’s (Mount Hermon) population is mostly Syrian Druze, making their communities very close; this is one of the reasons why several fighters volunteered to protect this area from jihadist rebels.
