The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th and 137th brigades have been under siege in the Deir Ezzor Governorate for over a year now, with little to no reinforcements available to relieve their embattled and exhausted soldiers.

Making matters worse in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army has constantly been under attack by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), leaving the government units on high alert almost every day.

However, this situation is expected to change in the coming weeks as Hezbollah mobilizes its elite units to help protect the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor and liberate several areas under the Islamic State’s control.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent’s contact in Deir Ezzor, Hezbollah has sent its first batch of elite fighters to the military airport in the aforementioned province.

These Hezbollah soldiers are expected to join forces with the Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Iraqi paramilitary) fighters that are already participating in the battle for Deir Ezzor.

With their arrival in Deir Ezzor on Friday morning, Hezbollah is now positioned at nearly every province in Syria (save Al-Hasakah, Idlib, and Al-Raqqa).

Erdogan must have spit coffee on the newspaper this morning.

I hope you are wrong; because giving out location of fighters is tantamount to putting a target on them.
