The Syrian Arab Army’s 1st Armored Division and Hezbollah are on a roll in the Qalamoun Mountains of Syria, as they have captured a number of villages and hilltops that overlook the imperative Lebanese border-towns of Brytaal and ‘Arsaal in the Ba’albak Governorate of Lebanon.

On Sunday, the 1st Division and Hezbollah attacked a multitude of villages under the control of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at the eastern and western part of the Qalamoun Mountains, killing over 40 enemy combatants and destroying eight armored vehicles mounted with a variety of anti-aircraft machine guns.

Hezbollah began their operations on Sunday morning with a fierce assault on Jabhat Al-Nusra’s positions at Mi’rsah Al-Shmaliyah, Tal-Dawrat, Sahel Al-Mi’rsah, and ‘Aqbah ‘Umm Al-Rakab in the western part of the Qalamoun Mountains, where they successfully took control of these small villages near the Lebanese border, killing two dozen enemy combatants in the process.

Meanwhile, in the eastern part of the Qalamoun Mountains, the SAA’s 1st Armored Division carried out a number of attacks on Sunday, capturing the strategic village of Wadi Al-Kinissah from the militants of Jabhat Al-Nusra; this village is located between the towns of ‘Assal Al-Ward to the west and the Al-Jubbah Heights to the northeast.

With the SAA’s 1st Armored Division taking control of Wadi Al-Kinissah, the Syrian Armed Forces have officially entered the Al-Jubbah Heights for the first time in three years.
