Monday proved to be the bloodiest day for Hezbollah in the Qalamoun Mountains of Syria, as the Lebanese Resistance force stormed the remaining positions of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at Tal Thaljah; this attack resulted in Hezbollah taking full control over this strategic hill located east of Tal Al-Moussa.

However, despite Hezbollah’s success at Tal Thaljah, the Lebanese Resistance force suffered their highest recorded death toll since the inception of this offensive in the Qalamoun Mountains – Hezbollah confirmed six casualties that included their senior field commander of operations in the Qalamoun Mountains – Ghassan Faqiya’ (AKA “Al-Hajj Saajid”) – who was reportedly killed on Monday morning.

Among the other casualties that were identified from Hezbollah were Ahmad Hussain Mohsen of Bleida, Nabitiyeh (South Lebanon), ‘Adnan Al-Sablineh of Al-Sarafand, Nabitiyeh (South Lebanon), and ‘Ali ‘Abbas Al-Hajj Hassan of Na’bi ‘Alaa, Beqa’a (East Lebanon) – the other casualties were not announced by Hezbollah as of yet.

According to a military source in Damascus, Hezbollah was fighting uphill against the enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra, with no air cover from the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) because of weather conditions; however, the source further added that the Lebanese Resistance fighters killed a large number of Jabhat Al-Nusra militants before taking control of Tal Thaljah.

The battle for the Qalamoun Mountains is reaching its conclusion, as Hezbollah has asserted control over all border-crossings and the towns of Ras Al-Marra, Faleeta, and ‘Assal Al-Ward.

Hezbollah’s next military endeavor will be to capture the imperative resort-city of Al-Zabadani on the border of Lebanon and Syria in the Western Mountains; this city is critical to Hezbollah because of its proximity to their supply route from the Nabitiyeh Governorate in southern Lebanon and the Nahleh Municipality in eastern Lebanon.

The greatest sacrifice is to lay your life on the altar of freedom against the US bankers and their ISIS/Al Qaeda death squads. May these heroes rest in eternal peace.
