The Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades” have hit a streak of bad luck in southern Syria over the last three weeks, as they have now lost all of their previous gains from the September offensive that put them in position to attack the Syrian Government strongholds of Khan Arnabeh and Hadar inside the Golan Heights of the Al-Quneitra Governorate.

At sunrise on Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 90th Brigade of the 9th Armored Division – in coordination with Fouj Al-Joulani (Golan Regiment) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra (Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade) of the National Defense Forces (NDF) – launched a counter-assault at the 4th Battalion Base outside of the town of Taranjah, resulting in a series of intense firefights with the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 90th Brigade and the National Defense Forces were able to impose full control over the 4th Battalion Base after they overran the Free Syrian Army’s defensive positions; this forced the aforementioned Islamist rebels to withdraw to Tal Taranjah in order to regroup after their frontlines crumbled at the base.

According to a military source from the town of Hadar, the Islamist rebels have conducted a counter-assault since losing the 4th Battalion Base; however, they have yet to regain any territory lost to the Syrian Armed Forces this morning.
