The Al-Nusra Front and its allies, backed up by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), managed to break through the Syrian Army’s defense lines in the Western outskirts of Hader when two suicide bombers scored direct hits on army positions.
As a result of the attack, the Al-Nusra captured several points while also killing at least half a dozen of civilians inside the predominately Druze town of Hader.
According to eyewitnesses, the Israeli forces provided support for the Al-Nusra that were attacking the Syrian government positions near the town of Hader.
In response, the Syrian army sent a large number of reinforcements to Hader to help drive back the terrorists from the town’s Western outskirts, while other army units, backed up by the country’s Air Force, recovered several points, including the al-Waseet checkpoint and Qars al-Nafl hilltop.
A military source said the the Israeli-backed Al-Nusra suffered a large number of casualties during their failed offensive in the Golan Heights region in Quneitra province on Friday, adding that the Syrian Army has recaptured all the sites it had lost.
Another source said that the attack was the Al-Nusra’s heaviest offensive since the start of crisis in Syria, adding that terrorists used new flanks for the first time to hit the army’s defense lines near Hader.
The source said that the Israeli forces opened new corridors for the Al-Nusra to attack the army stronghold from new flanks.
Photos released on social media in August showed that the Israeli medical personnel recovered wounded terrorists from the Syrian side of the Golan Heights and then treated them in medical centers on the Israeli-occupied side of the region.
According to sources, the militants were treated by the IDF Israel’s medical centers only to then be sent back into Syria were they continue to commit terrorist acts.
Despite the fact that such gunmen were labeled as “rebels” by Western and Persian Gulf media due to their apparently “moderate” stance against the Syrian government, the actual reality stands that a vast majority of the Golan-based militants which Israel provides medical and military aid to were committed militants who pursue sectarian ideals in Syria.
Israel is known to have assisted Golan-based militants of the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front with medical aid and military equipment since as early as 2013.
In late-June of this year, Israel provided air support for terrorists’ offensive against pro-government forces at the city of Madinat al-Baath.
Local sources disclosed in late June that several terrorists, who had been wounded in the battle with the Syrian government forces in Quneitra province, were taken to an Israeli hospital.
