DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:55 A.M.) – The newly launched ‘Road to Damascus’ offensive proved far from successful for a coalition of rebel groups in Quneitra province who have thrown hundreds of jihadist militants and dozens of military vehicles at the government-held town of Madinat Al-Baath over the past week.

On Wednesday evening, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) regrouped for a major counter-offensive, retaking the final four points that were overrun by opposition forces five days ago.

Amid the SAA assault, at least 20 rebel fighters were killed including none other than Abu Osamah Al-Karar himself, a Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (Al-Qaeda) commander who led the initial assault on behalf of the unified ‘Army of Muhammed’ operations room.

Despite three consecutive Israeli air raids over the past week, the SAA has now officially retaken all lost turf and neutralized the large-scale rebel offensive which looked to relieve the collapsing East Ghouta and Daraa frontiers.

According to a military source close to Al-Masdar News, the SAA could use the momentum to dislodge insurgent forward positions in a bid to retake the border with Israel.

Retaking the border with Israel is an absolute MUST to deprive the Zionist tyranny from the excuse of attacking its forces on the pretext of shells fired by the Zionists’ al-Qaida proxies inside the Zionist occupied Syrian Golan. Though the Israeli Zionist junta is still officially at war with Syria, the front line had been very quiet and not seen any incidents at all until 2011, when the aggression and invasion of Syria by proxy conveniently dubbed “revolution” began.
