BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – For the second time this year, the Israeli Armed Forces have struck the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) observation post at the key hilltop of Tal Al-Harrah in the western countryside of the Daraa Governorate.

The reason for this observation post’s importance is due to the fact that Tal Al-Harrah gives the Syrian military a clear view of the Al-Quneitra Governorate and the eastern region of the occupied Golan Heights.

For the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), this observation post could cause problems in the future for their troops, especially because it allows the Syrian military, who is allied with Iran and Hezbollah, to monitor their movements near the border.

Previously, the hilltop was controlled by the militant forces, in particular, the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades, who posed no threat to the Israeli forces near the demilitarized zone.

However, with the Syrian military once again in control of Tal Al-Harrah, the Israeli Defense Forces have shifted their focus to this observation post in order to prevent the former from comfortably using it.

The Syrian Army will likely repair the damage done to the observation post and beef up their defenses around it so that the future attacks will not harm their forces.

Syria is not allowed to relaliate against Israel, not allowed to retake Idlib from Turkey, not allowed to retake N/E of Syria from US-Kurds. This interdiction come from Putin to please Netanyahu, Erdogan, Trump . Putin is happy with Tartous and Heimim, nothing else matters.
What a huge, unconditional support the US give to Israel . To weaken Syria a bit more, Putin tries to expel Iran from Syria ! Russia, What an ally !

+++ “Syria is not allowed to relaliate against Israel” >>> Wuldn’t they provoking Israel by letting Hezbo terrorists deploying, it wouldn’t happen. Want to avoid issues with Israel? It’s simple : IGNORE THEM! Egypt had no problem to make Israel its best friend, now they’re even working together at extracting the Levantine gas basin and IDF drones+sats assist Egyptian army at dealing with ISIS… In fact, SAA even receives AMAN/Mossad intelligence through GRU! +++ “not allowed to retake Idlib from Turkey” >>> Sorry, they’re working at it! +++ “not allowed to retake N/E of Syria from US-Kurds” >>> There is… Read more »

I think that Hezbollah and IRGC should take control of that hills..and SAA give them AD resources like Pantsir and Buk..beside Iranian made system…SAA is unable to deter Israeli attacks..the reasons are unprofessional movements, bad officers and commanders, unskilled personal, lack of coordination..etc…

In fact, it’s what Hezb/IRGC are doing NOW and it’s why IDF is going after them! They even have built a secret (likely underground) HQ in the back-country which, as soon as its position will be identified, will get a bunker-buster… Russians have already expelled most of Hezb/IRGC from a 80km inside Syria because it’s a liability for both SAA and the Russians since Syria is already at war and these idiots are into packing troops at the border which, under Hague Convention, is a CASUS BELLI. Do you fücking understand that if they go on, IDF will invade Southern-Syria?… Read more »

Oh will.you look at the moron in chief digging deeper in the most laughable tracks of his broken Hasbarah record, as always pushing intellectual misery as far as invoking international law in favor of outlaw rogue state Isreal, speaking of Casus Belli while the IDF’s mere presence and its government’s annexation of the Syrian Golan give the Syrian state every right and legitimacy to wage endless war against its invading and occupation forces, troop deployments and associated structures by any means it deems necessary , by the very letter of the relevant section of the UN Charter relating to state… Read more »

PPS : you don’t just ask people to IGNORE the problem, when it happens to be a valuable chunk of their sovereign land stolen by you jewish neighbors. State affairs dont work that way, kid. It’s actually the other way around :You jews want to solve the Syrian/Lebanese problem in ONE GO plus the unferlykng Iranian issue by way of natural consequence ? GIVE BACK what your filthy hands STOLE from them and see what happens. Egypt accepted to utterly jump off your opponent list when you did that (albeit they had to wreak humiliating havock on your forces at… Read more »

PS :Russia’s subsurface and blue water navy force alone are largely enough to devastate micro-state Israel’s ENTIRE critical military infrastructure in massive overnight cruise missile strikes and reduced its armed forced effectiveness and warfighitng ability by 80% at the very least, without even counting their supersonic strategic bomber wings that would come after for double-tap if needed to finish the job. Indeed the IDF will only go as far in Syria as Putin wants them to, another delirious attempt on your part to paint Israel as some sort of military superpower capable of taking on, or intimidating the world’s 2nd… Read more »

Why was your ,best in the world, army begging for ceasefire with Hezbollah, with Hamas ? Because they are unable to combat on the ground. They are too afraid to die. As soon as Israel looses his air superiority, you’ll see migrants from Israel towards Europe and the US.

Quite right, Emile. Indeed, whenever air superiority alone cannot help Israel win a war, well… they don’t win it at all, suffer causalities like any other army in the globe, and have nothing either exceptional or unique to offer in comparison, and in any case, certainly not anything remotely close to “invincibility”, just like the SS or the Wehrmacht in their time.

Sorry, the sunni shithadists are on Turkey+Qatar payroll,
the Shiite shiithadists are on Iranian [shrinking] payroll.
Israel is the 9th biggest arms exporter, over Italy.
From 2013 to 2017, their value in exports has rose by +55%
India is the #1 client.
I’ve never seen a single shithadist pictured with a Tavor riffle or a Desert Eagle.
But you strangely often see Iranian weapons in seized ISIS stockpiles…
