DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out a powerful assault against the jihadist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) on Wednesday, targeting their positions along the Hadar-Quneitra Road in the Golan Heights.
Led by Fouj Al-Joulan (Golan Regiment), the Syrian Armed Forces managed to secure the northern part of the Hadar-Quneitra Road after capturing the key hilltop of Tal Al-Naqar in the Golan Heights region of Al-Quneitra.
With the recent advances in the Golan Heights, the Syrian Armed Forces are in position to push further south of Hadar towards the heart of jihadist-held Al-Quneitra.
While Fouj Al-Joulan and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra (Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade) push south along the Hadar-Quneitra Road, the Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division is being tasked to capture the jihadist-held territory east of Hadar.
In the coming weeks, the 42nd Brigade and their comrades from the 7th Armored Division will be pouring into the Al-Quneitra Governorate to begin their military operations.
