Syrian Army repels major jihadist offensive in Quneitra

Quneitra, Syria (12:47 A.M.) – Hours after the massive offensive Ahrar Al-Sham and Qaeda-linked Jabhat Fath Al-Shami announced in Quneitra province in southern Syria, the Syrian Army was able to fully repel the jihadist offensive.

Aside from the Al-Qaba’ hill, the offensive was an abysmal failure as the assault on the strategic Unit 4 Hill, otherwise known as Tarinja Unit Hill, did not fruit any gains while costing dozens of lives and several armored vehicles.

The forces officially involved in this offensive are JFS, Ahrar Al-Sham, and Bait Al-Maqdis who are very similar to Jund Al-Aqsa due to their links to the ISIS-backed faction of Jaish Khaled Ibn Al-Walid.
