It has been a long month for the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies in Al-Zabadani, as they have lost control of 80 percent of this resort-city to the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Divisuon, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Hezbollah.

On Sunday morning, the situation inside Al-Zabadani did not get any better for Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army’s “Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani” (Al-Zabadani Hawks Brigafe), as the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah imposed full-control over the Mahata neighborhood after a three hour battle with the Islamist rebel militants.

In addition to the capture of the Mahata neighborhood, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah made huge strides in the western sector Al-Zabadani, progressing to the strategically located district of Hikmat after Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s defensive frontlines were fractured by the SAA, resulting in the Islamist rebels retreat to this area on Sunday afternoon.

With the western sector becoming increasingly violent, southern Al-Zabadani has experienced a relative calm over the course of 48 hours, due to the militants of Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham withdrawing from this area.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces pounded the Islamist rebels with over 300 missiles and mortar shells on Sunday.

Firefights are still ongoing in Al-Zabadani; however, this battle is reaching its conclusion, as the Syrian Armed Forces and the Lebanese Resistance continue to advance around the downtown area.
