Hezbollah (Party of God) continued their fierce assault on the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra) south of the recently captured hill of Tal SyriaTel in the Saybah District.
The militants from the Al-Nusra Front were unable to withstand Hezbollah’s powerful attack near Tal SyriaTel, resulting in the latter advancing their positions further south in the village of Mosahra.
As they continue to make strides in the village of Mosahra, Hezbollah eyes the main militant supply route that is also used by the Al-Nusra Front to transport reinforcements and their wounded to the border of Israel.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) are on high-alert at the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, due to the emergence of Hezbollah fighters on more than one border-crossing into the country.
Meanwhile, in the Al-Hamidiyyeh, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 9th Armored Division carried out a number of attacks on the militants from the Al-Nusra Front and militias loyal to the Free Syrian Army (FSA), progressing towards the village cemetery after fierce clashes for 2 straight days.
Fighting was also reported in a number of areas in Al-Quneitra, including ‘Umm Batna, Al-Samdaniyyeh, and Naba’ Sakhar.
