Quneitra: Al-Nusra Front’s Base Destroyed, Terrorists’ Offensive Repulsed
The Syrian army units used missile and artillery fire to destroy one of al-Nusra Front’s centers near Tal al-Hamariya in the Southern parts of Hader village in Northern Quneitra, killing all the militants inside and smashing their weapons and equipment.
The Syrian soldiers also clashed with the al-Nusra terrorists who had attacked an army position in al-Maqrousa and Ain Harfa regions, warding off the offensive and killing and wounding several militants.
A number of military equipment and weapons belonging to the terrorists were also destroyed in the clashes.
Last week, terrorists of Ahrar al-Sham and al-Nusra Front had jointly attacked the government forces’ positions in Northwestern Quneitra, but failed to advance.
Ahrar al-Sham and al-Nusra used tens of forces in their fresh round of attacks on army positions to the South of the town of Hader and Tal (hill) al-Hamriyeh, but the army units, including the Golan Regiment, and popular forces fended off their offensive, inflicting at least 30 causalities on them.
Terrorists’ attacks on government positions mainly focused in al-Dalafeh region between the towns of Hader and Jabatha al-Khashab.
Meantime, a field source said that terrorists are trying to occupy Hader and simultaneously lift army’s siege on their comrades in Southwestern Damascus.
