BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:25 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition targeted a Syrian military convoy near the Tanf border-crossing, yesterday, after the Damascus-led group allegedly moved too close to their positions in southeast Homs.
According to a military source in Damascus, the primary force in that convoy was a Syrian ‘Alawi group known as “Saraya Al-‘Areen.”
Saraya Al-‘Areen was trained by Hezbollah and they are active across the country, participating in the battles in Aleppo, Latakia, Damascus, and Palmyra.
Also traveling with this Syrian military convoy, yesterday, was members of the Syrian Arab Army, National Defense Forces, and Imam Al-‘Ali Regiment.
