In December 2017, the forces of the Syrian Arab Army carried out operations aimed at blockading and destroying the Jebhat an-Nusra terrorists in the Beit Jinn farms.

At the first stage of the operation, the last bulwark of the group's terrorists was destroyed on the eastern heights of Tel Maktul from the northwestern side of the Tal Bardaya mountain chain, there was destroyed large number of militants and their equipment. The Jabhat An-Nusra militants were demoralized and, taking with them the bodies of the dead, left their positions, fleeing towards the village of Mughr Al-meer.

The objective of this offensive was the liquidation of militant strongholds to the northeast of the Beit Jinn farms, where large numbers of militant groups led by Jabhat An-Nusra, associated with Israel, operate. Developing the offensive, the SAA liquidated up to two militant units in the vicinity of the village of Mughr Al-meer, captured and destroyed their weapons and ammunition.

After this, under the cover of artillery fire, the forces of the SAA took the heights of Tellat Al-Baida, Tal Ahmar, western Tel Al Maktul. During the operation, a significant number of terrorists were eliminated. As a result, government forces approached a distance of 1 km to the Beit Jinn farms, which means the continuation of the ring around the Jabhat An-Nusra militia from the northeast front.

Thus, a front line is formed for conducting military operations "along the arc" - from the road of the Beit Jinn farms through Sukhul in the west and the villages of Kafr Hawar, Beit Tima and Beit Saber in the east and up to the village Mughr Al-meer in the southeast of the settlement.

Based on these positions of the SAA with the support of the self-defense units during the many hours of fighting took the hills Tel Al-Zahar Al-Aswad and the An-Najar farm.

As a result of the operations, government forces took control of the chain of heights that stretches from the west of the village of Hinah to the north of the Beit Jinn farms through the hills of Bardaia, Kafr Hawar and Beit Tima in the east and up to the hill of Tel Az Ziyat in the south. In addition, the supply routes for the Nusra militia were blocked on Beit Jinn farms and in Beit Jinn. During the fighting, Jabhat An-Noussa terrorists, supported by Israel, suffered significant losses in manpower and armament.

Developing its success, the SAA continued the operation to clear the territory of the Jabhat An-Nusra militants and other supporting groups in the Beit Jinn area, particularly in the village of Mughr Al-meer. In battles, the enemy suffered damage in manpower and technology. Sighting artillery fire at the positions of the Jabhat An-Nusra militants in the vicinity of Makam Ash-Sheikh Abdallah in the eastern part of the Beit Jinn farms destroyed 2 units of military equipment equipped with ZU-23, in addition, a large number of terrorists were killed and wounded.

Subsequent to this, the forces of the SAA, with the support of the self-defense groups, intensified the rocket and artillery shelling of the Jabhat An Nusra headquarters and militia in Tel Mirvan, Tel Zaart, the village of Mughr Al-meer, 3 km east of the Beit Jinn farms, there were a large number of dead among the militants, dozens more were forced to flee to the Beit Jinn farms. As a result, groups of militants in Beit Jinn were completely surrounded, all supply routes were cut off from the north-east and south, and the road through the Al-Awajj River, which remained the only corridor for the movement of militants to Beit Jan to Tel Mirwan and the village of Mughr Al-meer.

The militants who were surrounded by the militants were demoralized, quarrels began between the commanders of the detachments. Some of the Nusra terrorists attempted to flee to the Golan Heights via the Marsad Jabal Al-Sheikh corridor, which is controlled by Israel.

The difficult situation of the militants became more complicated after the SAA's forces dispersed and partially destroyed the militants moving through the forests of Jabat Al-Khashab in the north of the province to help militants on the Beit Jinn and Mughr Al-meer farms near Damascus.

At the same time, actions to eliminate the Jabhat An-Nusra militants on Beit Jinn and Mughr Al-meer farms continued. Under the guise of intense shelling of militant positions on the Tel

Mirwan and Mughr Al-meer lines in southwestern Damascus, the SAA forces are developing an offensive against Al-Qinayat Tellat Amer in the vicinity of Tel Ahmar, northeast of Harf village to the south of Beit Jinn farms. Government forces succeeded to establish control over the territory of Al-Kinayat and the positions of militants near Nab al-Manbaj, on the eastern approaches to the Beit Jinn farm, replacing the terrorists "Nusra" from there. In addition, on the Tel Mirwan – Mughr Al-meer – Nab al-Manbaj line near the Beit Jinn farms with large losses for the enemy, an attempt was made to attack the militants.

In general, in December 2017, the Syrian government forces managed to localize and then encircle the Jebhat al-Nusra terrorists in the Beit Jinn area.
