The Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the prestigious 4th Mechanized Division – alongside Hezbollah and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – have captured over 46 buildings along the road from the Al-Jami’yat District to the city-center, leaving many militants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda dead.

Among the buildings captured by the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah were the Al-Zabadani Sugar Station and the Abu Mazen Villa; these buildings were the location of some of the fiercest in Al-Zabadani over the last 48 hours.

Following their success at the Al-Jami’yat District, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah carried out a powerful assault on Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s defensive positions to the east of the Al-Zahra Mosque and the Castle, capturing more building blocks, while also killing 16 enemy combatants.

On Sunday, Hezbollah and the Syrian Armed Forces issued a final ultimatum to the militants of Jabhat Al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army’s “Al-Zabadani Hawks Brigade” to agree to a complete surrender or else prepare for the final assault on their defensive positions inside Al-Zabadani.

Hezbollah and the Syrian Armed Forces are currently in control of 85 percent of this resort-city in the Rif Dimashq Governorate’s western countryside, while the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra are completely surrounded and under a full-scale siege.

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.
