The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their military operations in the Golan Heights of Al-Quneitra on Wednesday, targeting the key road linking the town of Hadar to the provincial capital.

Led by Fouj Al-Joulan (Golan Regiment), the Syrian Armed Forces launched a powerful assault at the large hilltop of Tal Al-Naqar; this resulted in a series of back-and-forth clashes that lasted for three hours on Wednesday afternoon.

Following their breach of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham's first line of defense at this hilltop, the Syrian Armed Forces used their momentum to expel the terrorists from Tal Al-Naqar by 4:00 P.M. (Damascus Time).

As a result of their operations on Wednesday, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to secure much of the road linking Hadar to Quneitra City, leaving only the southern part of this roadway under the control of the terrorists.

In the coming weeks, the Syrian Armed Forces will likely intensify their operations in the Golan Heights as additional reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army's 4th Mechanized and 7th Armored Division pour into the province, Alamsdar reported.
