Syrian Army Seizes FSA Military Base in Golan Heights in Quneitra

TEHRAN (FNA) – The Syrian Armed Forces on Saturday morning stormed the 4th Battalion Base of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the Golan Heights and took full control over the base after fierce clashes with the FSA militants.

At sunrise on Saturday morning, the Syrian Army’s 90th Brigade of the 9th Armored Division, in coordination with Fouj Al-Joulani (Golan Regiment) and Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra (Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade) of the National Defense Forces (NDF), launched a counter-assault at the 4th Battalion Base outside of the town of Taranjah, resulting in a series of intense firefights with the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades.

The FSA has now lost all of their previous gains from the September offensive that put them in position to attack the Syrian government strongholds of Khan Arnabeh and Hadar inside the Golan Heights of the Quneitra province.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 90th Brigade and the National Defense Forces were able to impose full control over the 4th Battalion Base after they overran the Free Syrian Army’s defensive positions; this forced the aforementioned militants to withdraw to Tal Taranjah in order to regroup after their frontlines crumbled at the base.

According to a military source from the town of Hadar, the FSA militants have conducted a counter-assault since losing the 4th Battalion Base; however, they have yet to regain any territory lost to the Syrian Armed Forces this morning.

Russian Operations Weekly Review: Syria Advances as Russia Increases Airstrikes on Militants

Russian Operations Weekly Review: Syria Advances as Russia Increases Airstrikes on Militants

TEHRAN (FNA)- Russia has increased the number of daily airstrikes in Syria several times in full coordination with the Syrian army’s intensifying offensives on terrorist-held regions and positions across the war-stricken nation.

Over the past week, Russia destroyed 363 ISIL facilities as the Syrian army continues offensives around the country to combat terrorist groups, the Russian Media reported.

Russia’s presence in Syria led to a change in the focus of the US-led coalition’s strikes against ISIL. The US continues minor airstrikes in Syria, generally using drones and striking near the Iraqi and Turkish borders. However, the drone use has created issues of air control, as Russian aircraft are often forced to fly in close proximity with US drones, as Russia’s defense ministry showed in a fly-by of a MQ-9 Reaper drone.

In Aleppo, the Syrian army began an offensive against ISIL to break the Kuweires air base out of encirclement, as well as offensives around the southern outskirts of the city, liberating 14 villages only in the last two days.

The offensive appears to be effective, as ISIL is moving fighters from Iraq to Syria, according to Defense Ministry intelligence. ISIL twitter accounts have been posting maps of a supposed counter-offensive they were planning, to cut off the road the Syrian army uses for supplying Aleppo, but the counter-attack failed and the ISIL-Nusra militants were pushed back after sustaining large casualties.

The Syrian army also began an offensive in the Lattakia province, in which al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front massacred hundreds of civilians in previous years.

The offensive has thus far killed hundreds of fighters, according to Syrian military sources, but remains one of the more difficult offensives due to Lattakia’s mountainous terrain.

In Damascus, the offensive against ISIL and other terrorist groups has gained ground at several points, according to reports.

Damascus is controlled by the Syrian government, and many anti-government areas controlled by the Free Syrian Army have signed ceasefires with the Syrian government. However, portions remain controlled by ISIL and other groups including the al-Nusra Front.

In the eastern Deir Ezzur, the Russian military destroyed a key bridge which previously allowed ISIL to resupply an enclave it held in the city. Offensives in central Syria’s Homs, Hama and Idlib have continued to gain ground.

It is not clear if US-supplied TOW missiles, many of which reportedly ended up in the hands of terrorist groups such as al-Nusra continue to destroy Syrian army tanks. Almost no new videos have been uploaded, and terrorist groups have been found reusing old videos and presenting them as new for propaganda purposes.

Some units of al-Nusra have also reportedly been in talks to align with ISIL. ISIL broke away from other rebel groups in 2013 in a bitter power struggle which also saw it disaffiliate from al-Qaeda.

Three Senior Al-Qaeda Commanders Killed in Bomb Explosion in Syria’s Idlib

Three Senior Al-Qaeda Commanders Killed in Bomb Explosion in Syria's Idlib

TEHRAN (FNA)- Three senior commanders of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front were killed in a bomb attack on the group’s meeting in the Northwestern province of Idlib.

The local activists identified the warlords as Abu Zubayr Al-Sham, Abu Dujana Al-Ansari and Abu Al-Nasir Al-Jazrawi.

Al-Jazrawi was a Saudi national and the highest ranking commander in this group of killed al-Qaeda emirs.

No one has thus far claimed responsibility for the bombing; however, al-Nusra and their affiliated-faction “Jund Al-Aqsa” have recently been the target of criticism from their allies in “Jeish Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) due to their unwillingness to combat the ISIL.

Meanwhile, heavy clashes have erupted between the Takfiri militant groups and the Syrian forces in Salam in Lattakia, a military source said.

Syria’s government troops, supported by Russian airstrikes, continue their offensive in the country’s Western regions.

Russia started precision airstrikes against the ISIL targets in Syria on September 30, following a request from Syria’s internationally recognized government. The Russian airstrikes hit targets that are chosen based on intelligence collected by Russia, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

  1. Go the heroic Syrian Arab Army, whom God has chosen to stick a finger in the eye of Zionists, imperialists, neocons and Arab and Turk trogs.
    The number of times Nusra, ISIS, and other rat commanders have been vaporised while convening, leaves no room for doubt that the SA MI has scores of eyes and ears within their criminal orgs.
    Syrian MI is also skilled at intercepting rat communications, and fluent in Russian, Chechen and Turk.
    There is no way out for these Hell-bound vermin.
    Kuweiris Airbase is close to liberation, after 2 years’ heroic resistance by SAA defenders. When free, it will be a jumping-off point for RuAF sorties northwards, to hammer Erdo’s borderlands, where MI6 and rat-lovers are scuttling.
    Syria — No pasaran!
