The Syrian military sources said on Thursday that Israel planned to link regions between Quneitra and Western Ghouta of Damascus followed by connecting al-Harmoun mountains to Qalamoun mountains.
They also underlined the strategic importance of Quneitra province that borders the Israeli-occupied territories, and said this region bridges Southern and Western Damascus in addition to connecting the country’s Southern and Central parts from the borders with occupied Golan to the bordering areas with Lebanon.
The Syrian army has returned to the disengagement line which was used for field coordination between terrorist groups, including the al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board), and Israel that linked its borders with occupied Golan from Sha’aba region at the Lebanese borders to the village of Ma’ariyeh in the triangle which borders Syria, Jordan and Golan.
During the battles in Southern Syria, specially in the town of Jabata al-Khashab, which has been cleansed by the army, Israel trafficked a large number of militants through the occupied Golan borders to Syria to support the terrorist groups.
The Syrian government forces managed to capture four more regions in Quneitra on Wednesday after a sum of 300 terrorists retreated towards Northern Syrian, and is now only a few inches away from declaring Quneitra a free province.
A sum of 300 terrorists withdrew from the town of Jabata al-Khashab and the nearby villages along with their family members on 6 buses and moved towards Northern Syria via the Ofaniyeh passageway.
Later, the army entered the towns of Jabata al-Khashab, Toranja, al-Horiyeh and Ofaniyeh in Northern Quneitra to come in control of 99 percent of the province.
Meantime, local sources said that terrorists plan to retreat from the towns of Barqiyeh and Beir al-Ajam to Northern Syria soon, adding that once the two towns come under government control, the army’s mission in Quneitra will be accomplished.
