The Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah surprised the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” with vicious ambush on Barada Street, killing over 30 enemy combatants from the aforementioned Islamist group inside the resort city of Al-Zabadani on Wednesday morning.

Following their ambush of Jabhat Al-Nusra, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah pressed the Islamist rebel contingents to the east of Barada St., where they attempted to push closer to Al-Zabadani’s downtown area.

On the other-side of Al-Zabadani, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah continued their march along Jamal ‘Abdel-Nasser Street, capturing more buildings near the Al-Zabadani Bus Station after fierce clashes with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army’s “Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani” (Al-Zabadani Hawks Brigade).

Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched over 40 airstrikes on Wednesday, targeting Jabhat Al-Nusra’s movements around southern Al-Zabadani and the nearby town of Madaya.

As the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah resume their full-scale offensive of Al-Zabadani, the Islamist rebel groups outside of the city have issued many threats, including their continued reprisal on the predominately Shia towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya in the Idlib Governorate.

Despite these threats, Hezbollah and the Syrian Armed Forces have remained undeterred, as they are on the brink of entering the downtown area of Al-Zabadani.

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.
