The Syrian Arab Army’s 67th, 81st, and 120th brigades – backed by the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), Dara’ Qalamoun, and the Desert Hawks – launched their first assault to enter Quraytayn during the wee hours on Wednesday morning, targeting the southeastern gates of this desert-city.

According to a military source at the nearby T-4 Military Airport, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to reach the Quraytayn Orchards before they were forestalled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) around 6:15 A.M. (Damascus Time).

The Syrian Armed Forces will likely make another attempt to enter the city in the coming hours or days, as they surround the city from 3 different flanks and possess the high ground along Jabal Quraytayn.

They should apply the tactics that were used in Zabadani. That way they would either fight a war of attrition or retreat.

They should attack without SSNP.
