TEHRAN (FNA)- Military sources said that the Syrian Army and the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement, in their mop-up operations in Zabadani, uncovered one of the largest supply tunnels of rebel groups in Zabadani area.

The sources said that the Syrian Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – uncovered one of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s large supply tunnels that stretched from the Beit Al-Dalati neighborhood to the outskirts of Southern Zabadani.

The large tunnel unearthed by the Syrian army and Hezbollah was used by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham militants to resupply and reinforce their embattled combatants that were completely surrounded by the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance near Zabadani’s city-center.

Following the discovery of this tunnel, the Syrian armed forces and the Lebanese Resistance continued their advance inside Zabadani, capturing the Beit Al-Dalati Neighborhood after intense clashes with the rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) “Zabadani Hawks Brigade” and al-Nusra Front.

In addition to the capture of the Beit Al-Dalati Neighborhood, the Syrian armed forces and Hezbollah advanced to the Dawar Al-Salwaan Neighborhood, where they confronted a large contingent of Nusra Front and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham combatants’ en-route to their march towards Zabadani’s downtown area.

Assisting their comrades from the air, the Syrian Air Force conducted over 40 airstrikes above Zabadani and Madaya, targeting a number of hideouts of rebels.
