The Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades”, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” captured the strategically located “U.N. Hill” (Tal Qaba’a) after fierce clashes with the National Defense Forces (NDF) in the Golan Heights of the Al-Quneitra Governorate on Saturday morning.

However, some six hours after declaring their full-control over the imperative hilltop, the Islamist rebels found themselves under attack by Fouj Al-Joulan (Golan Regiment) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra (Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade) of the National Defense Forces (NDF) at U.N. Hill.

This counter-assault provide successful for Fouj Al-Joulan and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra, as they took full-control of U.N. Hill after a brief engagement with the Southern Front, Jabhat Al-Nusra, and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham in the Golan Heights; this offensive by the Islamist rebels was supposed to propel them into the Syrian government stronghold of Khan ‘Arnabeh.

U.N. Hill is vitally located west of Khan ‘Arnabeh, which is a city that the pro-government forces use to not only resupply themselves, but also, train new recruits to join one of their NDF contingents combatting the Islamist rebels in the Golan Heights.

With the fighting inside the Dara’a Governorate dissipating over the last month, the Al-Quneitra Governorate has become the focal point for the Islamist rebels, who have now launched two major offensives in two months.
