Aleppo, Syria (2:30 A.M.) – A large contingent of Hezbollah commandos reportedly arrived in Aleppo on Tuesday night after completing the arduous journey from the Qalamoun Mountains in rural Damascus.

According to a local military source inside Aleppo City, Hezbollah specifically sent veteran commandos to this volatile front in order to combat the large presence of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) jihadists that are preparing to storm the provincial capital.

Much of Hezbollah’s soldiers that participated in the recent southern Aleppo battle against Jaysh Al-Fateh were either Syrians from Al-Zahraa and Nubl or new recruits from Lebanon.

Several of the Hezbollah soldiers that arrived tonight in southern Aleppo are the same military personnel that participated in the successful  Qalamoun/Zabadani offensive in the Summer of 2015.

On Tuesday, several pro-government activists reported the Syrian Army advanced in the southern Aleppo districts; however, these claims were later denied by the soldiers stationed inside the provincial capital.

SAA and their allies won’t strike back till they’re ready… But once they do, they’ll crush once and for all Jabat-al Nusra… Or whatever they want to be named

”Much of Hezbollah’s soldiers that participated in the recent southern Aleppo battle against Jaysh Al-Fateh were either Syrians from Al-Zahraa and Nubl or new recruits from Lebanon.” I thought hezbollah was purely lebanese soldiers and if they are iraqi or syrian they will have their own sub paramilitary group, like with kataib hezb in iraq? This really sounds like they are finding excuses for the poor performance in aleppo last week, especially after strong rumors of them and wlad arguing over who’s boss and that is why RuAF held back a lot of airstrikes leading to this huge loss. It… Read more »

You missed the point. Hezbollah is now a regional force which due to some strategic objectives is recruiting forces from allied nations but has it’s elite force which it calls to duty when the situation demands it just like US SEALS, British SAS which were spot on the Aleppo front leading the ranks of terrorists as recently as a day ago which makes your praise for JAF a little bit hyped. I won’t take the credit from JAF because they have veterans of the Afghanistan war against the Soviet forces among the ranks of their elites too. But make no… Read more »

You make a good point. Russians were happy to help tiger forces take castello by bombing jihadi forces. But in the predominantly iranian southwest alleppo front, something seemed lacking from saa army and russian airforce. There are too mamy jihadi tanks etc driving around in broad daylight not getting whacked by russian airforce. Apart from poor quality training pro assad troops seem to have suffered from same problems as rebels in the past , in that there are too many different militia forces , you have saa , ndf, tiger forces, hezbollah, iranian rep guard, iranian militias, iraqi militias. All… Read more »

Why is the site disclosing information that may endanger peoples’ lives. There were 10’s of thousands of jihadist terrorists preparing to storm Aleppo, and no activist or “journalist” made a peep about it.
