A Syrian-Hizballah force fights its way towards Quneitra

The Syrian Army’s 9th Division and a Hizballah contingent continued Saturday and Sunday to advance on the strategic Tal Al-Harra on their way to the Golan town of Quneitra, amid fierce fighting with the opposition Syrian Revolutionary Front and al-Qaeda’s Jabhat al-Nusra. As the winter weather eased, Syria resumed its air strikes on rebel forces. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Syrian reinforcements from the 7th Mechanized Division and the 5th Armored Division joined the 9th Division in the last 24 hours and were on the point of launching an attack on Tel Al-Harra.
