25 August 2015 12:14


Day 47 of the Syrian Arab Army/Hezbollah offensive in Al-Zabadani got off to another great start, as they captured a number of sites from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army’s “Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani”, and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” inside the southeastern sector of this resort-city on the Syrian-Lebanese border.

On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – conducted a powerful assault on Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra’s defensive positions at the Ajjan Neighborhood, killing 19 enemy combatants before they captured 15 buildings en route to the Al-Zabadani Power Station.

In addition to their success near the Al-Sultani District, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance continued their advance inside the Mahata District, killing 13 enemy combatants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani, while capturing a number of building blocks near the ‘Umar Al-Farouq Mosque.

According to battlefield reports from inside Al-Zabadani, 22 enemy combatants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham surrendered themselves to the Syrian Armed Forces after a brief battle to the east of the Al-Zahra Mosque.

Assisting the Syrian Arab Army from the air, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) conducted over 30 airstrikes on Monday, targeting a number Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham agglomerations near Al-Zabadani’s city-center.

Fighting is still ongoing between the two opposing sides in Al-Zabadani, as the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah now control almost 90 percent of this resort-city.
