The Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah have taken control of half of Al-Zabadani after six days of intense fighting with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani (Zabadani Hawks Brigade), and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham (Liberators of the Levant Movement).

On Wednesday morning, the Lebanese Resistance and the Syrian Armed Forces continued their advance along Main Street in southeast Al-Zabadani, where they imposed control over fifteen farms and building blocks en route to the city’s downtown that is now within 150 meters of their current frontlines.

Following their advance at Main Street, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade and Hezbollah secured Al-Sultaniyah Street near the village of Al-Jami’yat, killing over 25 enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army before nightfall dissipated the firefights inside the city of Al-Zabadani on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, at the village of Al-Zahra, the Syrian Armed Forces carried out a powerful assault on Jabhat Al-Nusra’s positions near the city of Al-Zabadani, capturing a number of new points under the cover of the Syrian Arab Air Force’s relentless airstrikes.

In a surprise visit, the Syrian Arab Army’s Chief of Staff, General ‘Ali ‘Ayoub, flew into the beautiful resort-city of Bloudan in order to inspect the 4th Mechanized Division’s positions and to meet with his officers in Al-Zabadani.
