On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 1st Armored Division – in coordination with Hezbollah (Party of God) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – captured the strategic hill of Tal Al-Hamra in between the villages of Faleeta (Syria) and Jaroud ‘Arsaal (Lebanon) in the Qalamoun Mountains of western Syria.

The 1st Armored Division and the NDF were able to take control Tal Al-Hamra, while a Hezbollah contingent attacked the surrounding hills, securing the area after fierce clashes with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra (Victory Front) and Harakat ‘Ahrar Al-Sham (Liberation of the Levant Movement).

According to a military source in Damascus, the SAA and their allies killed a total of 21 enemy combatants, including Mohammad Kamal Al-‘Umran, ‘Ali Wasseem ‘Issa, ‘Abdel-Lateef Rayyan Taha’, Hussein Izat Al-Yasseen, and Zaher Hani Abu Jamaal.

South of the Qalamoun Mountains, the SAA’s 1st Division and Hezbollah continued to progress west towards the imperative city of Al-Zabadani, making their way to Tal Al-Akhdar (Green Hill) on the eastern slopes of the Western Mountains.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a total of 33 air raids at Al-Zabadani on Wednesday, targeting Jabhat Al-Nusra and Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani (Falcons of Zabadani Brigades) gatherings around the city and in the Western Mountains.
