Day three of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) offensive in the Syrian Golan Heights got off to a rough start for these Islamist rebels, as the Syrian Armed Forces’ frontline defenses proved too difficult to bypass at Tal Taranjah, Tal Qaba’a, Tal Al-Ahmar, and Mazra’a Al-Amil.

The day began with the Free Syrian Army storming the southern perimeter of Tal Taranjah; this prompted rebel social media activists to post declarations of victory at Tal Taranjah, despite the non-stop fighting that was still engulfing the southern flank of this imperative hilltop at the border of the Al-Quneitra and Rif Dimashq Governorates.

Unfortunately for the Free Syrian Army, they were unsuccessful in their military endeavor to take the strategic hilltop of Tal Taranjah; instead, they suffered over 20 casualties and the destruction of two armored vehicles during their charge.

The defeat at Tal Taranjah did not deter another group of Free Syrian Army fighters that took another jab at Mazra’a Al-Anil; however, similar to the battle for Tal Taranjah, the Islamist rebel forces were unsuccessful in bypassing the National Defense Forces’ positions.

Day 4 of the offensive has not started off any better for the Islamist rebel forces, as field reporter, Hosein Murtada, has just confirmed the destruction of another armored vehicle near Tal Al-Ahmar.

Intense firefights between the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels are still ongoing at the hilltops of Tal Al-Qaba’a, Tal Al-Ahmar, and Tal Taranjah – no reports of any map changes thus far.
