Two days after the militants from the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigade” captured the strategic hill of Tal Hamr in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 9th Armored Division – in coordination with Fouj Al-Joulani (Golan Regiment) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra (Hawks of Al-Quneitra Brigade) – launched a counter-assault to recapture this area and lift the siege of Hadar that began on Wednesday.

On Friday morning, the SAA’s 9th Division and their allies surprised the militants from the FSA’s Southern Brigade with a powerful counter-assault at the southwestern perimeter of Tal Hamr, killing over 2o enemy combatants and destroying an armored vehicle that was mounted with a 14.5mm anti-aircraft machine gun before they were able to take complete control of this imperative hill around 9:30 P.M. (Damascus Time).

In addition to their capture of Tal Hamr, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to successfully push the rebel insurgents from the border of the predominately Druze town of Hadar, lifting the siege after two days of non-stop firefights with the FSA’s Southern Front around the eastern and northern flanks on Friday afternoon.

According to a military source in the province, the Southern Front’s offensive in the Al-Quneitra Governorate failed to yield any permanent gains, as the Syrian Armed Forces were able to recover all of their lost territory that the rebel insurgents captured during the first 24 hours of their assault; this includes the hills at Tal Hamr and Tal Baraq

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
