BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – A large convoy of Hezbollah reinforcements arrived at the T-4 Military Airport on Wednesday night to assist the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) against the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) in the Palmyra countryside.

According to a military source at the T-4 Military Airport, over 100 soldiers from Hezbollah arrived in eastern Homs, as part of the latest contingent of reinforcements to participate in the upcoming Palmyra offensive.

Hezbollah conducted limited operations near the T-4 Military Airport on Thursday, despite their large presence around this key installation in the vast Syrian Desert.

Similar to their previous operations in Syria, Hezbollah will carry out their own operations in coordination with the Syrian Arab Army, with Iranian and Russian military advisers overlooking their movements.

In addition to their presence near Palmyra, Hezbollah also maintains a presence at Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria; however, their forces are rather small in this desert province near the Iraq border.

Same weakspot as in Palmyra. They have to work as one unit and not socalled coordinate.

Too low educated troops, wrong they dont do things unless they get orders from Damaskus. After Years they still dont know how different units are much stronger working together.

Cant see SAA are able to handle the strong sides of armed vehicles such as tanks.

Now we have SAA in one corner and Hesbollah in another. Sometimes its more in Aleppo – A military babylon of the worst kind.
