Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham Launches Major Attack, Captures Important Army Base Near Al-Golan Heights

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

On Friday, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) captured the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 90th Brigade base east of al-Hadar town in the southern Damascus countryside, according to the HTS-linked news agency Iba’a.

Iba’a also claimed that the SAA is now shelling HTS positions in the area.

Then, pro-government sources claimed that the SAA and local National Defense Forces (NDF) fighters recaptured Al-Hira hill east of al-Hadar and all other position that had been lost in the HTS attack.

Pro-government sources confirmed Iba’a claims about HTS capturing the 90th Brigade base.

The attack is a major violation of the de-escalation agreement in southern Syria. Furthermore, Iba’a claims about SAA shelling is considered by many pro-government sources a sign to Israel to conduct airstrikes on the SAA positions in the area.

The attack followed reports that Israeli troops advanced 200 meters inside the area controlled by HTS and its allies near the village of Beer Ajam south al-Hadar town. Likely, the Israelis at least knew about the attack in advance if it was not a coordinated effort with them even.

Many Syrian experts believe that the Israeli airstrike on Masyaf on September 7, and the Friday violation of the de-escalation agreement were just an Israeli reaction for the SAA achievements against ISIS in Deir Ezzor.

    HTS being able to capture an army base, assuming it was an operational base, is disquieting.

    It is no a break of the ceasefire as HTS is excluded from any ceasefire. If FSA forces took part, that is another matter.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They lost it faster than they took it in a surprise amassed attack , al-Hadr was recaptured by the Syrian Army which regrouped nearby with NDF and Republican Guard, instead of their usual fallback position.

  • cynic

    Maybe involving Israeli troops?

  • Antonovs

    Time to wipe that FSA off the map completely, time of talk is over

    • Freespirit

      Time for TALK, was over in 1947.

      Those KHAZAR Ashkenazi, FALSEJews from Europe should have been RETURNED to Europe, “Post Haste”

        It’s not only the Khazars (whom represent the Left within the Talmudists) but the Zionists which are also talmudists.

        The Mishnah/Talmud is the problem, sorry,

        • Freespirit

          I am quite aware of what you say and have been for many years, but thank anyway.

    Israel troops now most likely operating with Al Qaeda. That equates them as fair game.

    • Jean-marie Hamel

      So Vicious is israHELL, and US medias, they use ISIS name one day, next Daesh, next Al qaida… they are Only One Terrorist organisation, israHELL is The Boss, just look how Powerfull ISIS can be, they are even in Philipina !

      • Carol Binkley

        Well, that certainly clears everything up.

        • Shy Talk

          the list of anti government militants is quite extensive but they range from Jaysh al-Islam who actually exchange prisoners to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (al qaeda in Syria) who like to behead prisoners, nour al din al zinki who behead children to ISIS aka ISIL aka Islamic state aka Daesh who have been known to eat internal organs of executed prisoners or was that al qaeda i’m confused now

            They all generally sell the organs to the Israelis who take them for Israelis or sells them abroad for hundreds of thousands of dollars especially in the US. The Israel the country with the lowest donor rate and yet the highest transplant rate in the world. Human organ trafficking was done in the former Yugoslavia by foreign hired Muslims of Al Qaeda in Bosnia, Albania and Kosovo , another US propagandized conflict which it started in the 1980’s . Sad an Industrialized nation now is a bunch of debtor states , can’t survive without NATO handouts.

        I Like the way you see all this Mess, these wars have a reason, For The Greater israHELL ! These zionists Dream to Possess the Land of Others, to do so they have to KILL ALL CITIZENS, and US, Loving israHELL, like a dog licking his Master, goes to wars !

          Don’t forget that there are also other interests. The Talmudists are not an all powerful gang, they have infighting an they also have “partners” that go their own way when they want.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Al Nusra is HTS the white helmets are with HTS, AAS are still more Head choppers but enemies to HTS , the FSA has some 280 different factions and none have any links to a political group and are only backed proxy fighters.

    • Nigel Maund

      The US “Deep State” (read Zionist International Bankster Cabal) Anglo – Americans, with Israel, are basically funding and arming all the terrorist groups as “Proxy Armies”. The constant name changes are aimed at totally confusing “the precariat” (general public) in their totally controlled MSM. They also embed their special forces to provide training, undertake INTEL gathering, undertake clandestine operations and sniper supported assassinations of key personnel ( Russian, Syrian, Iranian or Hezbollah) and to lead counter attacks and normal attacks. These special forces also can call in air attacks against key startegic targets. I hope this helps you understand what is ëngineered” confusion.

    I actually thought HTS had agreed to leave the desert. Guess I was wrong about that.
    KiraSeer

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The New FSA had agreed to leave the South eastern Syrian desert this is in the west near Golan Heights around Daraa.

    Maybe this is the prelude to a large-scale Israeli intrusion into South Syria , beyond occupied Golan , as the ”Syrian girl partisan” website had warned several days ago. The Israelis were presumably in cahoots with the FSA to stage a false-flag chemical attack in the area , to be blamed on SAA , giving the pretext for Israel to invade in force. This , since all their attempts to co-decide the future of Syria were in vain.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Mimi has a good head on her shoulders she has a degree in chemical engineering she goes by Syrian girl or Partisan girl on YouTube.

  • Marc Fischer

    The Israelis have always been hand in hand with terrorists, since conception of the illegal apartheid state. Irgun Stern and Lehi were Zionist terror groups that bombed hotels and killed hundreds of innocent people to further their wicked cause. The King David Hotel bombing killed scores of women and children who were the families of British officers serving under the UN mandate. The sneaky massacre of the crew of the USS Liberty(34 dead, 171 seriously wounded) was one of the worst mass killings of the personnel of an allied military ever known in modern times and it was completely INTENTIONAL.
