Syrian Army Wins back More Strategic Regions in Quneitra
The army men and the National Defense Forces raided the Al-Nusra positions and managed to drive the terrorists out of the strategic region of Red Villa near the town of al-Samdaniyeh al-Qabri.
Field sources said Red Villa region is of crucial importance as the army men can now monitor and thwart any preemptive assault by the terrorists. The region links supply lines and its capture can also speed up the army’s movements.
The sources said the army also pushed terrorists back from al-Mokhtar Villa near the town of al-Samdaniyeh al-Sharqi after hours of non-stop clashes.
Relevant reports said last week that the army troops managed to fend off another Israeli-backed attack of Al-Nusra Front and restored full security to the town of al-Ba’ath in the Southern province of Quneitra.
The army men engaged in fierce clashes with Al-Nusra terrorists and warded off their attack.
The army soldiers further carried out a rapid counter-attack and managed to push terrorists back from two lost positions West of al-Ba’ath, restoring full security to the town.
The Al-Nusra, backed up by Israel, has carried out several rounds of attacks on pro-government forces’ positions.
In the meantime, the army units engaged in heavy fighting with Al-Nusra fighters that intended to prevail over the army’s defense lines Southeast of al-Hamidiyeh in Quneitra countryside.
The army’s artillery and missile units, meanwhile, pounded the movements of the terrorists in the region, inflicting major losses on the militants and forcing them to retreat from the battlefield.
Field sources confirmed that top Commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board) in the region nom de guerre Abu Abdullah al-Na’eemi was killed in the army attack in Quneitra.
News websites affiliated to the terrorists confirmed that they have lost all the captured positions to the army men in areas near al-Ba’ath.
The websites termed the army’s rapid and powerful attack and militants’ failure to run coordination as two main reasons of the terrorists’ withdrawal from regions near al-Ba’ath.
