4-9-2014 – “The Chargers at Dawn” battle, which aims to capture several regime-controlled areas in Quneitra province and advance northeast into the rebel-held Damascus suburbs of West Ghouta, was announced by various FSA factions in a statement Thursday. “If we win the points we’re trying to capture, the FSA will be in the proximity of West Ghouta,” Locka al-Zoubi, head of the Ababil Houran Battalions’ media office, told Syria Direct Thursday.
As of publishing, rebels had already taken control of several intended targets in Quneitra, including Tel Mheed and areas around the village of Majduliya, according to the battalions’ Facebook page.
