Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – have continued their advance inside the resort-city of Al-Zabadani, capturing a collection of farms after fierce clashes with the Islamist rebel factions.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah captured Sahel Al-Zabadani and its surrounding farms, killing 19 enemy combatants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani, and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra,” while also destroying four armored vehicles that were reportedly mounted with either a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun or a doshka.

In addition to their capture of Sahel Al-Zabadani, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah conducted a number of successful attacks on Tuesday, advancing along Jamal ‘Abdel-Nasser Street and Main Street en route to Al-Zabadani’s downtown area.

Despite claims that Jabhat Al-Nusra had advanced in the northern countryside of Al-Zabadani, video footage from Al-Manar have negated these claims and verified the current positions of the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah inside the city.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah soldiers are in search of Jabhat Al-Nusra’s main tunnel from Madaya to Al-Zabadani; if found, this could spell trouble for this Al-Qaeda affiliate and their allies inside the city.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
