Without firing a single bullet, the Syrian Arab Army’s 90th Brigade of the 9th Armored Division withdrew from Al-Samdaniyah Al-Gharbiyah (west Al-Samdaniyah) towards the Syrian Government stronghold of Khan ‘Arnabeh in the Al-Quneitra Governorate’s eastern countryside.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 90th Brigade – in coordination with Fouj Al-Joulan (Golan Regiment) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra (Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade) – captured West Al-Samdaniyah after a series of intense firefights with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

However, it appears the Syrian Armed Forces had no intentions of maintaining their ground at this town because three hours after seizing West Al-Samdaniyah, the pro-government forces unexpectedly withdrew from the area.
