Battlefield Source: Terrorists in Quneitra Receive Reinforcements, Military Hardware from Jordan.
"A large number of terrorists have joined their comrades in Quneitra province in Southern Syria via Jordan," a battlefield source said.
"Meantime, hundreds of militants have moved from Idlib to Jordan via Israel to join other rebels to restructure a new battalion that will be armed to the teeth and will operate under the command of a joint operation room with Israel,".
The source said that the terrorists have also taken a large volume of arms and military equipment with themselves to Southern Syria.
"The terrorists are preparing for a massive attack on al-Saria al-Rabe'a region to enter al-Amal farms and are transferring military warfare to the Jabata al-Khashab region that hosts the terrorists' main base and their joint military operation room with Israel," he added.
The first mission of the new battalion will be striking at the Southernmost parts of Quneitra and Damascus province.
The terrorists' relocation and restructuring seems to be a move to open a new front along Syria's Southern borders to deflate pressure from other regions, specially Aleppo, Lattakia, Deir Ezzur and Quneitra.
Thousands of terrorsits from Fatah Al-Sham (Nusra) Front regrouped and launched a massive attack on army positions in the Southwestern province of Quneitra last month, but were crushed even after they received strong air support from the Israeli air force.
At least two Israeli military planes and two choppers were downed by the Syrian army during the clashes in Quneitra last month.
Last Monday, terrorist groups left tens of their dead comrades in the battlefield and pulled back after sustaining a heavy defeat at the end of their major offensive on government troops' positions in Quneitra province.
"The Syrian army troops fended off repeated assaults of a large group of terrorists on their positions in al-Anqar al-Gharbiyeh near al-Amal farms towards South of Mashati Hadhar, and inflicted heavy casualties of the terrorists," battlefield sources told FNA at around midday, adding that the terrorists also sustained a major damage on their military grid.
"Meantime, the army soldiers targeted a group of terrorists, who were destroying farms and people's lands to build new strongholds in the Southeastern side of al-Talal al-Hamar and East of the village of al-Hadhar, killing the entire members of the group," they further added.
The pro-government military troops repelled similar attacks by the terrorists on their positions near a village North of Quneitra last Saturday, and inflicted, at least, 20 casualties on the militants.
Terrorists' assaults to break through government positions near the village of Tal al-Shahm were repulsed by the soldiers of the 4th division of the Syrian Army.
Terrorist groups left behind 20 dead bodies and retreated from the battlefield. An unspecified number of militants were also wounded in the clashes, reports said.
Also in the same region, the Syrian army's artillery units opened heavy fire at the terrorists' centers near the village of Mas'hareh, inflicting several casualties on the militants.
