TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Led by their elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Army has managed to take control of the most important hilltops inside the jihadist-held Beit Jinn pocket.
With the hilltops of Taloul Al-Barda’yah captured, the Syrian Army has effectively established fire control over the town of Mughar Al-Mir, which is the last site before jihadist stronghold of Beit Jinn.
Watching the Syrian Army’s advance from afar is the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), who can often be seen monitoring the situation near the occupied Golan Heights.
While Israel is not able to do much besides provide artillery and missile support to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the recent advances by the Syrian military near the occupied Golan Heights are likely to upset the Tel Aviv regime, as a victory in Beit Jinn will secure the Iranian base and end the jihadist presence in western Damascus.
More importantly, once Beit Jinn is captured by the Syrian Army, they will shift their attention to the Golan Heights, where they will look to secure their stronghold of Hader near Mount Hermon.
