Syrian Army, Hezbollah And Iran Are Preparing For ‘Gigantic And Ferocious Battle’ In Border Area With Israel
On October 19th, Western Journalism reported that Hezbollah, together with Iranian forces and Bashar al-Assad’s army, had reversed a rebel offensive in the northern Kuneitra Province in Syria and that Hezbollah fighters were already along the border with Israel on the Golan Heights, where they seized the so-called UN Hill opposite the Druze town of Magdal Shams on the Israeli Golan Heights.
They “are now expected to advance in the direction of the town of Kuneitra opposite the observation point on the Israeli Golan Heights,” we wrote at the time.
Yesterday, Lebanese media reported that Hezbollah and government troops were redeploying ‘en-masse’ from their positions in the mountainous area in Zabadani along the border with Lebanon. The Assad axis had been fighting rebels during an offensive that lasted from July to the end of September until a local ceasefire was brokered between the rebels and the government coalition.
A source told the outlet All4Syria that the Hezbolah and government forces were heading to the front in eastern Ghouta and Darayah at the southern outskirts of Damascus.
“23 Microvans, 14 large Kia vehicles, 16 large Toyotas, two small closed top cars, three Inter trucks, 3 ZiL vehicles full of men, 15 taxis carrying Hezbollah and NDF members and four large transport vehicles (each) big enough for over 200 passengers,” All4Syria wrote.
