BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:33 P.M.) – The Radwan Division, a Hezbollah special forces formation made up of elite shock troops, is to be sent to the embattled city of Daraa in order to bolster the strength of pro-government forces there.

The formation has participated in many major battles throughout Hezbollah’s involvement in the Syrian War and it has proven itself to be as daring in offense as it is stubborn in defence. The formation has access to mechanised equipment (including tanks and armoured personnel carriers) and its fire support assets are mostly self-propelled.

Although confirmation exists of the Radwan Division being sent to Daraa, the amount of troops the formation is bringing with it and the exact mission it will fulfill once it arrives there remains unknown. Indeed, the entire fate of the pro-government offensive to liberate the city of Daraa from rebel forces is now in question after the operation stalled – seemingly before even really starting – about two weeks ago.

In any case, if pro-government forces plan to resume a major offensive action in Daraa then the Radwan Division will most likely be one of the spearhead formations of such an operation.
