Golan Heights, Syria (3:45 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a large-scale offensive in the Al-Quneitra Governorate on Saturday that targeted the government-controlled Golan Heights region.
Led by Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the jihadist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) controlled hilltops near the key town of Hader; this resulted in a series of intense firefights on Saturday.
According to a military source in Damascus, the jihadist rebels were only able to capture Tal Al-Qaba’ and Tal Al-Hamirat, while their main assault at Tarinjeh ended in failure.
The military source added that at least 20 militants were killed during the failed assault on Tarinjeh.
Government-backed “Fouj Al-Joulan” (Golan Regiment) released photos of the battle’s aftermath, showing several jihadist rebels killed:
Clashes are still ongoing; however, the main assault has been repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces near Hader.
