Major Military Operation Believed to Be Directed by Quds Force
“Regime troops and their Hezbollah-led allied are advancing in the area linking Daraa, Quneitra and Damascus provinces,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported today.
A field commander told Syrian state TV: “The military operation launched by the Syrian army in the south continues under the leadership of President Bashar Assad and in cooperation with the axis of resistance – Iran and Hezbollah.” (Asharq Alawsat/ABC, 12 February)
The area captured today by Syrian government forces and its allies are close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
