The Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance forces killed tens of terrorists, including one of their ringleaders, in an ambush in al-Zabadani city.
The forces killed and injured terrorists and freed a number of blocks in Za’tout district in Zabadani city on Thursday.
During the conflicts, a notorious terrorist ringleader named Abdolrahim Kharitah nicknamed Abu Ali was killed in Bardi street in the Southeastern parts of Zabadani.
Abu Ali commanded the al-Nusrah Front terrorist group’s anti-armor unit and was a close comrade to Mohammad Zaitoun, the commander of al-Nusrah in Zabadani.
Also on Wednesday, the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance fighters backed by the Syrian army purged the last Takfiri terrorists from the Western parts of Zabadani in Damascus countryside.
Ain Tayat in Western Zabadani was purged of Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham terrorists.
Ain Tayat had become the most important stronghold of the Takfiri terrorists in Western Zabadani.
Tens of terrorists were killed in Hezbollah’s operations against Ahrar al-Sham and Al-Nusra Front which lasted several others.
The Syrian army and Hezbollah fighters have concentrated on mop-up operations in Zabadani.
In late July, the Syrian military and fighters of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah retook a key residential area in Zabadani.
Lebanese sources said Tuesday that the allied forces have taken full control of Hay al-Sultani neighborhood South of Zabadani, capturing the main entrance to the border city.
Scores of militants have reportedly been killed in the fighting in Zabadani which culminated in late July.
