Hezbollah has redeployed several units in the Syrian region of Western Qalamun on the Syrian-Lebanese border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed on January 30.
According to the London-based monitoring group, the Lebanese group deployed troops in an air-defense base of the Syrian military near the town of Jabadeen, as well as in a series of hills overlooking the town.
“Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that a number of Hezbollah leaders have taken some homes in Jabadeen as secret headquarters,” the SOHR’s report read.
Earlier this month, Hezbollah engineer units in the Eastern Qalamun region destroyed several tunnels, which were dug by militants in the early years of the Syrian war.
Hezbollah is now taking part in a large-scale attack led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) around the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.
The Lebanese group’s renewed activities on the Syrian-Lebanese border could be measures to secure its supply lines. The group is now, once again, moving fighters and weapons from and to Syria.
