On Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – countered the Islamist rebels attempted infiltration into east Al-Zabadani, resuming their offensive in the city-center after a 48 hour hiatus from this front.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah resumed their offensive at 8:30 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Saturday morning, when their joint contingents stormed the defensive positions of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army’s “Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani”, and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at the Al-Nabua District, killing 18 enemy combatants from the aforementioned Islamist rebel factions.

Following their powerful assault on Saturday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance plowed through the remaining territory under the Free Syrian Army and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s control in the Al-Nabua District, capturing the eight street blocks after fierce clashes with the aforementioned Islamist rebel groups.

In addition to their assault on Al-Nabua, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah swept through the buildings inside the Al-Zahra District after surrendered fighters provided information regarding their whereabouts.

According to a military source in Damascus, 11 members of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham surrendered themselves to a checkpoint manned by the Syrian security forces; these men are candidates for amnesty after they turned-in their weapons without resisting.

Sorry to say, but Leith should not call the terrorists , “Free Syrian Army”‘, in reality groups who are mixed within Nusra or Ahrar sham are like them terrorists, the problem has been Middle eastern media always takes the names the West gives any group.
