DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:00 A.M.) – Following the 2nd stage of the ‘Big Dawn’ offensive in southern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) received a large batch of Hezbollah reinforcements in the eastern countryside of Sweida on Wednesday afternoon.

The Hezbollah convoy consisted exclusively of its Syrian branch, comprised of soldiers from the two Shiite towns of Nubl and Al-Zahraa in the northwestern countryside of Aleppo. Syrian volunteers from Kafraya and Al-Fuah, two Shiite towns neighboring Idlib city, were also part of the convoy according to a military source speaking to Al-Masdar News.

In effect, the SAA will have a strong ally in the Syrian Hezbollah branch which will help government troops drive US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) factions out of their territories in the desert of Sweida and Rif Dimashq on the border with Jordan.

Due to a large-scale pincer offensive on Wednesday, the SAA is but a few kilometers from creating a massive rebel pocket in the region. Thus, FSA fighters have a last chance to retreat towards the Al-Tanf border crossing or they will face encirclement and certain death or capture subsequently. A map showing the current situation can be found here.

On the other hand, the FSA’s Osoud Al-Sharqiya released a short video on Wednesday showing its fighters shelling the advancing SAA and Hezbollah troops from afar:

I first thought these were some goat fuckers. They were repeating “Allahu suckbar” at least ten times. But after I saw the second video, where goat fuckers were squealing ONLY this rhyme, I came to conclusion they were probably really Hezbollah fighters.
