Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army, backed by local militias, successfully captured the village of Nab’ Al-Sakhr (Spring Rock) in the Golan Heights (Al-Quneitra Province). Nab’ Al-Sakhr is located near the Al-Kina Forests in the Golan Heights; it was used as a launching point for Jabhat Al-Nusra attacks. According to a military source, dozens of Jabhat Al-Nusra soldiers were killed during this week long battle for this village.

Jabhat Al-Nusra is still under siege from the Syrian Arab Army’s 7th Divison near the Israeli border crossing; fierce clashes have been reported in its vicinity. Meanwhile, firefights continue all over the province; specifically, in the areas of Al-Samadanya and Majdouliya, where Jabhat Al-Nusra and Syrian Revolutionary Forces (SRF) are working together to halt the SAA advance.

According to the IDF Spokesman, the Syrian Arab Army has utilized armored tanks within 10km of the Israeli border crossing point; violating the truce between the two countries. Two days ago, the Israeli Army attacked SAA positions in Al-Quneitra, when IDF sources claimed that mortar shells landed in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.
