Syrian Army Begins Surprise Offensive in Golan Heights
Mon Sep 26, 2016 10:26:49

The Syrian Arab Army, backed by Liwaa Muwahiddeen (Druze military) and Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment), launched a surprise offensive in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, targeting the key hilltop of Tal Humiryah inside the Golan Heights.

According to a military source in the Golan Heights, the Syrian Armed Forces launched their assault on Tal Humiryah from the imperative town of Hader, which is located near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights region.

So far, no gains have been reported by the Syrian Armed Forces; however, intense clashes are still ongoing as the jihadist rebels from Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) attempt to keep control of Tal Humiryah.

Tal Humiryah was captured by the jihadist rebels during the nationwide ceasefire that they did not adhere to earlier this month.
