BEIRUT, LEBANON () – The Syrian Arab Army’s armored corps had a rough time in western Rif Dimashq province yesterday, losing six tanks of various types to terrorist forces over the course of 24 hours.

Yesterday, pro-government forces – namely the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defence Forces – achieved a major breakthrough against Al-Qaeda-linked militants south of the strategic town of Beit Jinn in far West Ghouta. However, the advance came at a serious cost in armor.

According to Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate), the terrorist group’s tank hunter teams knocked out 5 Syrian Army tanks and a Shilka (armored self-propelled anti-aircraft gun).

Al-Masdar News is unable to confirm if Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham’s claim is true or not.

The Beit Jinn stronghold is the last terrorist pocket present in the western countryside of Rif Dimashq (Damascus) province. Despite being flanked on three-side by pro-government forces, one end of the militant-held area sits directly on the border with Israel from whom Al-Qaeda fighters receive medical aid, weapons and, sometimes, air support.

In any case, the Syrian Army is currently in the midst of a major operation to clear the region of terrorists and release additional forces for service closer to the Syrian capital and around northern Quneitra province.

I’m sure those anti-tank teams were supervised by Heebs and their American slaves.

This whole area needs a serious visit from RuAF…right up to the ‘Israeli’ border.
