On Wednesday, the Al-Quneitra and Dara’a Governorates were immersed with fierce clashes that filled a number of areas with an abundance of bloodshed, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah (Party of God) continue their large-scale offensive at these provinces in southern Syria.

The SAA’s 9th Armored Division – in cooperation with Hezbollah – focused their attention on the towns of Tal Qareen, Tal Al-‘Antar, and Kafr Nissaj, while their counter-parts from the 7th Mechanized Division applied pressure on the militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syria’s Al-Qaeda branch).

Meanwhile, in Al-Quneitra, the 9th Division and Hezbollah stormed Jabhat Al-Nusra’s positions south of SyriaTel Hill, where they faced fierce resistance from the enemy combatants.

According to a source in the 9th Division, 21 militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra were killed during the battle in the town of Mosahra, including 6 enemy combatants who were identified as the following: Abdel-Raheem Hourani, Mustafa ‘Issa Jawad, Zakariya Khaled Al-‘Assi, Thabit ‘Uthman Al-Faraj, Bashir ‘Anas Mansour, and Ismaa’eel Nabil Al-Ismaa’eel.

In Al-Hamidiyeh, the 9th Division engaged a contingent of Jabhat Al-Nusra fighters near the Old Village Cemetery, resulting in the death 16 enemy combatants and the destruction of an armored truck that was mounted with a 23mm machine gun.
