BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, alongside Jaysh Al-Tawheed, launched a powerful offensive in the Golan Heights, Saturday, targeting the Syrian government stronghold of Al-Ba’ath City.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies began the offensive by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at several axes outside of Al-Ba’ath City, forcing the latter to call on reinforcements from the Golani Regiment (Fouj Al-Joulan) and Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade (Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra).

Not long after the battle started, the official spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) alleged that at least ten shells landed in the occupied region of the Golan Heights; this prompted a response from their air force.

The Israeli Air Force carried out an airstrike over the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near Al-Ba’ath City, resulting in the death of two soldiers and the destruction of a shilka and tank.

With help from the Israeli airstrike, the jihadist rebels were able to capture the Al-Ba’ath Fire Station and Bemo Bank building, forcing the Syrian Army to retreat in order to regroup.

The Syrian Arab Army would later launch a counter-attack last night that resulted in the recapturing of the Bemo Bank and Al-Ba’ath Fire Station, while also forcing the jihadist rebels to withdraw from several nearby points.

The geopolitical situation is too dammed good at the moment to give in to a murderous provocation by filthy jew Grubs.

Fake news headline YET AGAIN; implying that Israel were the aggressors when they were fired upon first, as always. It must be difficult to always paint propaganda against Israel when you know for a fact that they always act in self-defence.

You know perfectly that the Rebels shoot Mortar shells on purpose on the occupied Golan to provoke an Israeli retaliation upon the SAA. Nobody misses the shot over 5 km with a mortar. The israeli air-attack was perfectly coordinated with the ground attack of the terrorist head-choppers. It is time that the SAA gets proper air-defence so that they can blow out of the sky the ISIS-Airforce (with a Davidstar).

It’s no secret that the zionist occupiers want to both have rebel jihadi groups on the borders as well as to prolong the war in Syria as much as possible. Israel’s biggest fear isn’t Hezbollah & Iran on it’s doorstep….it’s the end of the Syrian war god willing will come soon.
