BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division has been redeployed to the Wadi Barada area of rural Damascus after a short stint in the Golan Heights.

The 42nd Brigade has been involved in several important battles in the past, including the capture of Yabroud in the Qalamoun Mountains, Darayya, and Khan Al-Sheih.

Unlike the other Syrian Arab Army units involved in this offensive at Wadi Barada, the 42nd Brigade is under the direct command of General Maher Al-Assad and his appointed officers.

With their impressive track record in battle and technologically advanced weaponry, the 42nd Brigade will be leading the charge to expel the remaining jihadist rebels from the Wadi Barada area.

They waited for the enemy to retreat in the last two! Didn’t really capture them!

Mechanized division => just nicely pounding with tanks, self-propelled howitzers and BMPs with 120mm automatic mortars and wait enemy has enough to be shelled 24/7 😉
