BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army is making preparations for a new offensive operational against Israeli-backed jihadist militants in northern Quneitrah province. The operation will take place close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

At the present time, the Syrian Army is attempting to successfully conclude a military operation against jihadist militants in in the Beit Jinn region of Western Ghouta (also near the Israeli-border).

According to sources, the Syrian Army and allied paramilitaries plan to launch another offensive near the Israeli border in northern Quneitrah once wrapping up their Beit Jinn operation.

The offensive aims to liberate militant-held towns and villages in the region. Large battles are expected to during the course of the operation.

Back in June, the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group and Free Syrian Army launched an offensive against army positions near the government-held city of Al-Baath in northern Quneitrah province. The jihadist operation was directly backed by Israel who provided tactical air support.

After a week of fighting, pro-government forces managed to repel the militant offensive and prevent Al-Baath from falling into jihadist hands.

The Syrian regime and the Russians should take the opportunity to test their anti-missile and anti-aircraft rocket systems should the Israelis attempt to back the terrorists in the forthcoming battle (In particularly, the Israelis like to fly over poorly monitored Lebanese airspace and come up at the rear). The risk is that Russian weapons may fail against USA/Israeli weapons but if you never try it against real-time battle systems you won’t get to improve your systems. Hezbollah unexpectedly knocked out an Israeli frigate in the 2006 Lebanese War with an old Chinese C-801/2 missile. At the time, the Israelis claimed… Read more »

here we go, everyone who criticizes Israel is an anti-semite. i like how you support the legitimate syrian government and the men fighting to keep it intact but if that gets in the way of Israel, then suddenly SAA soilders are ‘pot smokers’. also gotta love how deluded zionists believe russia is on their side: if putin really was a b***h to netanyahu like you believe, then he wouldnt be supporting syrian government at all.
