Resistance Forces Win Back New Regions in Zabadani
The Lebanese resistance movement fighters backed by the Syrian warplanes hit the terrorists’ positions in the city of Zabadani and seized back new regions in the Damascus countryside on Tuesday.
The resistance forces took back several areas from ISIL control in Zabadani, and made their way to al-Saylan Square near the city center.
On Monday, the Hezbollah forces prevented 20 Al-Nusra terrorists from entering Zabadani and captured some of them.
Zabadani is a strategic border town located 50 kilometers Northwest of the Syrian capital, Damascus.
The offensive is part of a wider operation launched by Syria and Hezbollah since May 4, which has reportedly driven militants out of more than 90 percent of the territory previously controlled by them in mountainous Qalamoun region.
The highly strategic area, which straddles the Lebanese-Syrian border, was previously used by the al-Nusra Front militants for transferring weapons and ammunition into Syria, where they have been involved in terrorist activities.
Hezbollah fighters and the Syrian national military are engaged in a wide-scale military campaign against the Takfiri groups operating across Syria. Cleansing operations included so far Arsal barrens, Qalamoun region and Zabadani town.
