Intense Battle Underway Between Gov’t Forces, Terrorists in Golan Heights
“Syrian government forces have launched their offensives from the town of Hadar on the positions of Ahrar al-Sham and Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) to capture Tal Humiryah hilltop,” the sources said.
“The terrorist groups have thus far suffered heavy casualties and their military hardware has sustained major damage in the government forces’ attacks,” the sources said.
Military sources said on Friday that the Syrian Army sent a large number of fresh soldiers to the Southwestern province of Quneitra near the border with Israel to reinvigorate its combat capabilities to launch an imminent operation there.
“A large contingent of the fourth mechanized divisions, comprised of recent graduates from the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces school in Deir Attiyah, have joined the 90th Brigade’s headquarters in Golan Heights, where they will await orders to launch a large-scale offensive,” the sources said.
“The Syrian army soldiers, in their upcoming operation, are to capture the key terrorist-controlled town of Jabata al-Khashab, which has been under the control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Fatah Al-Sham for over two years.
