DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:50 A.M.) – For the first time since 2012, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – heavily assisted by Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary branch) – has restored control over the imperative T2 Pumping Station after achieving a decisive breakthrough in southeastern Syria on Thursday.

Shortly after capturing the facility, fresh footage was released by Hezbollah’s media wing depicting counter-insurgency operations against ISIS in and around the largely destroyed T2 Pumping Station, located approximately 100 kilometers south of the provincial capital.

In addition to regular skirmishes, the role of sappers is emphasized as ISIS often litters areas with mines and improvised explosives before retreating into their interior lines.

Last week, Issam Zahreddine – arguably the most celebrated Major General in Syria – was killed by a mine in Deir ezzor amid an event which underlined the extensive need for removing explosives in areas liberated from the Islamic State.

Nevertheless, with the T2 Pumping Station firmly under government control, the SAA has paved the way for a pincer offensive towards Al-Mayadeen that would either establish a pocket on the provincial border between Homs and Deir Ezzor or prompt a last-minute retreat from ISIS’ beleaguered forces in the region.

That’s a nice turn around. At one stage ISIS was going to go after Hezbollah in Lebanon. Now, ISIS is getting its @ss whupped by that same Hezbollah. LOL

Hezbollah are by far the most efficient fighting force in the world. They are few, but deadly effective. I would compare them to the Spartans in ancient Greece. For me, they are truly being guided by God all mighty and they truly deserve the title of ‘Party of God’ fighting against the party of ad-dajjal, the anti-Christ and ‘great deceiver’.
