GOLAN HEIGHTS, SYRIA (10:25 A.M.) – A large contingent from the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division arrived in the Golan Heights region of Al-Quneitra this week, as the government forces prepare for a large-scale offensive near the Israeli border.
According to a military source in Damascus, the entire unit was comprised of recent graduates from the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces school in Deir Attiyah.
These soldiers are now encamped at the 90th Brigade’s headquarters, where they will await orders to launch the upcoming Golan Heights offensive.
The objective of this upcoming offensive will be to capture the key jihadist-controlled town of Jabata Al-Khashab, which has been under the control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Nusra Front) for over two years.
