BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – In a bid to alleviate the pressure on their allies in the East Ghouta region of Damascus, the jihadist rebels launched a powerful assault near the occupied Golan Heights this morning.

Led by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the jihadist rebels attempted to capture several points from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the key city of Al-Ba’ath in the Al-Quneitra Governorate.

However, the jihadist offensive would fail after a short battle with the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) outside of Al-Ba’ath.

According to a military source in Damascus, the jihadist rebels attempted to take advantage of the recent redeployment of the 7th and 9th divisions from southwest Syria to the East Ghouta.

Despite the redeployment of the 7th and 9th divisions, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces were able to overpower the swarming jihadist rebels before they could seize any ground.
