BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Free Syrian Army (FSA) launched a surprise attack along the Sweida-Daraa axis, Saturday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses near the historical town of Busra Al-Sham.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their rebel allies attempted to advance into the southwestern countryside of Al-Sweida last night; however, they would find themselves overwhelmed by the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division and pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF).

According to a military source in Al-Sweida, the jihadist rebels suffered heavy casualties during their ill-fated assault east of Busra Al-Sham; this would prompt them to abandon their offensive operations in order to avoid anymore losses.

The jihadist rebels likely launched this attack in the western countryside of Al-Sweida, Saturday, to alleviate the pressure on their allies that are currently losing ground in the eastern part of the province.

To become a jihadist is already have a serious failure in ones brain! Psychiatrists even point radcalised religious fanatics they happen to meet are the most paranoid dudes they face in their whole careers, many consider that most of them are so far that except lobotomy or a bullet in the head, there is very few to do with them!
