On Thursday morning, the Islamist rebel group “Jaysh Al-Islam” (Army of Islam) carried out an attack on Hezbollah’s defensive positions at the villages of Alali and Mowzat in a desperate attempt to lift the siege imposed by the latter and the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Armored Division at the resort-city of Al-Zabadani.

However, what the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam did not expect was the fierce resistance that would come from the well-armed and well-prepared Hezbollah soldiers stationed at the frontlines of Alali and Mowzat near Al-Zabadani.

This intel failure within Jaysh Al-Islam led to a disastrous attempt to bypass Hezbollah’s frontline defenses and Alali and Mowzat in order to reopen the supply.

As Jaysh Al-Islam approached the villages of Alali and Mowzat, they were suddenly struck by a Hezbollah contingent along the road, killing a dozen enemy combatants; this did not deter the Jaysh Al-Islam militants, however.

Moments after the ambush by Hezbollah, the Jaysh Al-Islam militants reached Alali’s eastern axis, where they were once again confronted by a Hezbollah force along the main road to the village.

Unfortunately for Jaysh Al-Islam, this final attack sealed the deal, as over 20 of their combatants were killed by the Lebanese Resistance before they could get anything going.

All-in-all, the Jaysh Al-Islam attack proved disastrous, as over 30 of their armed combatants were killed by Hezbollah on Thursday morning – some estimates were as high as 50 enemy combatants killed.
