BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham rebels resumed their Golan Heights offensive, Monday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the key hilltop of Tal Ahmar.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies began the assault by launching a barrage of mortar shells and rockets towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions; this was followed by a large number of militants storming the latter’s defenses around Tal Ahmar.

While no gains have been made by the jihadist rebels thus far, sources from the Syrian Army expect interference from the Israeli military, as the latter claims ‘random’ projectiles have landed inside the occupied territories.

Israel has launched at least two airstrikes in the last 48 hours against the Syrian Armed Forces in the Golan Heights, killing two soldiers and wounding at least a dozen more.

If the SAA does not get supported , the Syrian government must be prepared to concede more ground , allowing Israel’s mercenaries to form a buffer zone of several kilometers East of occupied Golan. This is apparently what Israel aims for, this much they have implied.

They haven’t varied a iota from their typical ROEs (rules of engagement).
Some idiots shot mortar shells into Israel, Israel responded as usual, then
the cockroaches took profit from the (limited) strike. Thus, I think
Israelis did the strike on purpose to provoke this ‘side effect’, so if some
mortar or artillery team considers again about betting at the Khamenei-Lotery
(Khamenei signs a $7k check for any Israeli killed) in order to try to get a better
salary, they’ll think twice about doing it again.
You should look at Golan Heights map : there is already -although not enforced nowadays due to troubles- an UN buffer zone.

Actually, it’d be pretty easy to have the Israelis bomb the s**t out of Qaedans’ asses here! Well, it’d surely shake many low-IQ minds in the region but,if I were Assad, I’d phone to Bibi, in a few days, there’d be no more problems between Syria and Israel but moreover, jihadists would be pounded at level they can’t even imagine, no matter if they’re AQ or IS. And be sure Putin would applause! It can be made with 3 points Israelis will be happy to sign in! #1. 1947 border in Golan Heights. Let’s be clear : a good part… Read more »
