Syrian Army Seizes Fire Control over Key Town near Golan Heights
The sources said that the army men that broke-through defense lines of the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) on the Western slope of Bardaya hills managed to force the militants to retreat to the nearby town of Mughar al-Mir.
The source added that the Syrian Army now has fire control over Mughar Al-Mir and should be able to capture the town in the coming days.
Once Mughar Al-Mir is captured, the Syrian Army can work their way to the strategic town of Beit Jinn, which has long been a terrorist stronghold near the occupied Golan Heights.
Military sources confirmed on Wednesday that the army stormed again the strongholds of the Al-Nusra Front in Southwestern Damascus, coming closer to the terrorists’ largest bastion in the region.
The sources said that the army soldiers clashed fiercely with Al-Nusra terrorists close to Bardaya hill and managed to seize control over the Eastern direction of the hill covering a region from Northeast of Beit Jinn farm up to the Southwest of the village of Kafr Hoor.
A large number of Al-Nusra fighters were killed and their military equipment was destroyed in the attack, they said.
The sources went on to say that the Bardaya hill is of paramount importance and its capture by the army will enable the government forces to access Beit Jinn farm that is one of the largest bastions of Al-Nusra in Western Ghouta.
In the meantime, the Al-Nusra’s missile and artillery units targeted army positions in Tal al-Sha’ar region in Eastern Quneitra to back up their comrades in Beit Jinn and slow down the army’s advances in the region.
