DAMASCUS, SYRIA – Two branches of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced that they have shot down a Syrian warplane operating over the Syrian Desert in Rif Dimashq.

The FSA’s Ahmad Al-Abdo Martyrs Brigade claimed the plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire and plunged towards the ground near the village of Umm Ramam around noon on Tuesday. The allied FSA group Jaish Asoud Al-Sharqiyah also claimed the very same thing online.

Al-Masdar News was unable to confirm the claim with its military sources in Syria.

The Ahmad Al-Abdo Martyrs Brigade is based primarily in the East Qalamoun pocket but also operates alongside US-backed FSA militants in the Syrian Desert.

This news comes one day after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured over 20 strategic points from FSA insurgents in southern Syria.

On June 5 earlier this year, the aforementioned FSA factions shot down a jet of the Syrian Arab Air Force and documented the event in pictures. A pilot was killed at the time although no footage has emerged of today’s alleged incident.

On Sunday, ISIS insurgents launched a localized counter-attack in the eastern countryside of Homs, targeting the newly liberated Al-Mashirfah hill that overlooks the long-standing government fortification of Jubb Al-Jarrah.

Preluded by a successful suicide bombing, an elite ISIS Inghimasi unit assaulted the government-held hilltop which is located some 60 kilometers east of the provincial capital, Chris Tomson at Al-Masdar News reported.

As fierce firefights continued for several hours, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) finally withdrew from the strategic point on Sunday afternoon. Amaq Agency claimed 20 SAA soldiers were killed following the attack, primarily due to the initial car bombing.

Upon inquiring with a military source stationed in the area, Al-Masdar News was informed that the hill had indeed fallen although the alleged death toll could not be confirmed.

The SAA is now regrouping for a counter-attack to recapture Al-Mashirfah hill which nevertheless remains under firm Islamic State control for now.

Since launching a large-scale government offensive earlier this month, the SAA’s Desert Hawks Brigade, Military Shield Forces and National Defense Forces have liberated a handful of villages across the provincial border between Homs and Hama, a region representing a massive ISIS salient that stretches across much of central Syria.

God Bless.
