Syrian Army retakes over 170km2 of territory near occupied Golan Heights – map


The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had a successful day in the Al-Quneitra Governorate on Friday, as their forces managed to retake a large portion of territory that was under rebel control near the occupied Golan Heights.

According to a military source in southern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army entered and took control of more than ten towns on Friday, including the jihadist stronghold of Nabe’ Al-Sakhar.

In addition to Nabe’ Al-Sakhar, the Syrian Army also established control over the towns of Umm Batna, Mumtanah, ‘Ayn Tinah, Hajjeh, Suaysah, and Qusaybah in the Al-Quneitra Governorate.

As a result of this big advance, the Syrian Arab Army reportedly took control of more than 170 square kilometers of territory along the Daraa-Quneitra axis.

At the same time, the Syrian government also provided at least 55 buses to transport the remaining jihadist rebels and their family members from Al-Quneitra to the northern provinces of Syria.

The Syrian Army will likely enter the remaining towns in the Al-Quneitra Governorate that are controlled by the jihadist rebels in the next 48 hours, a military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

Once they enter these towns in Al-Quneitra, the Syrian Army will establish control over them and then shift their attention to the Yarmouk Basin region, where they plan on attacking this large Islamic State (ISIS) pocket.
