Elite Syrian troops sent to crush Al-Qaeda pocket near Israeli border once and for all

The high command of the Syrian Arab Army is re-directing an elite unit to the front-lines near the Israeli-occipued Golan region as part of an ongoing effort to crush a large pocket held by Al-Qaeda-linked militants.

Reports have come in that the 4th Armoured Division’s security office unit is being deployed to western Rif Dimashq province to support other Syrian Army forces currently engaged in a major battle with Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate) militants throughout the Beit Jinn region.

According to military sources, 4th Armoured Division’s security office troops are specially trained in urban warfare and close-quarters combat.

To this end it is expected that the unit will play a major role in storming Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham occupied towns within the Beit Jinn pocket including the strategic town of Beit Jinn itself – a major stronghold of the terrorist group.

This development comes after pro-government forces made a big advance in the Beit Jinn pocket yesterday, gaining control of a strategic hill top in the region.
