Al-Nusra Fails to Break through Syrian Army’s Positions in Quneitra

The al-Nusra Front’s offensive on government forces’ strongholds in the Southern province of Quneitra was pushed back by the army's strong defense, adding that the terrorist suffered a heavy death toll and fled the battlefield, sources said.

The al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front stormed the pro-government positions near Tal al-Hamiriyeh South of the village of Hadhar, but the strong defense to Syrian soldiers did not allowed them to advance in the battlefront and retreated from the battlefront under the heavy fire of the army men.

Al-Nusra's military equipment and vehicles were destroyed in the failed attacks.

In relevant developments in the province last week, the Syrian Army and its allies repelled Al-Nusra Front's offensive in the Southwestern part of Damascus province near the border with Quneitra.

The al-Nusra Front terrorists launched an attack on the Syrian government troops' military positions near the border with Quneitra, but the Syrian army forced the terrorist group to retreat from the battlefield without any gain, military sources announced.

The clashes between the Syrian army and al-Nusra Front terrorists lasted several hours, and at least 20 Takfiri terrorists were killed or wounded.

Meantime, the Syrian army pounded Al-Nusra Front's positions in the villages of Hassnoud, Zahr al-Aswad and Hareh al-Gharbi, inflicting heavy losses on them.
