Golan Heights, Syria (3:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham failed to make any significant progress in the Golan Heights for the second day in a row, thanks in large part to the Syrian Arab Army’s fierce resistance near the key town of Hader.

The jihadist rebels started the day by capturing the small hilltop of Tal Hamariyah after a short battle with the Syrian Armed Forces.

Following the capture of Tal Hamariyah, the jihadist rebels launched a massive assault at the strategic hilltop of Tal Taranjeh (Unit 4 Hill); however, this attack was foiled by the Syrian Armed Forces after a three hour long battle on Sunday.

Meanwhile, at the Tal Gren axis, the jihadist rebels suffered an embarrassing defeat at this hilltop, losing two dozen fighters while unknowingly entering a mine field.

In addition to their personnel losses, two of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham’s BMP tanks were destroyed while traveling through the mine field.

Near the town of Hader, the Syrian Armed Forces launched a counter-assault south of Tal Hamariyah; this result in an intense battle that is still ongoing at the eastern perimeter of the hilltop.

I thought all Golan heights were under Israeli occupation?
