Hezbollah Units, Iranian-Backed Forces Deployed In Northern Hama

Hezbollah has redeployed hundreds of its fighters from the southern Deir Ezzor countryside to northern Hama in order to support the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) operations there, Lebanese and Syrian pro-government activists revealed on May 30.

The activists didn’t provide additional details on the matter. However, it is very likely the fighters who were deployed in northern Hama are a part of Hezbollah’s elite units, which have been operating in southern Deir Ezzor for more than two years now.

Deir Ezzor 24, a pro-opposition news blog based in the eastern governorate, confirmed that several Iranian-backed local units were redeployed in northern Hama.

“The Iranian militia withdrew about 200 elements from the town of Mayadin in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor to the northern Hama countryside,” the blog said in a report.

The deployment of these units came as Turkey is reportedly negotiating a ceasefire around Idlib with Russia. A previous ceasefire agreement failed catastrophically, when Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies carried out a counter-attack on the SAA.

If the Turkish efforts fail, Hezbollah and Iranian-backed forces could support a new SAA ground attack in northern Hama.

Good. These friends will boost fightpower and moral.

Zionism = EVIL

The Hezbollah in 2019 is perhaps the strongest, most cohesive and determined military force in the Arab world. Its extensive experience in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq with combined arms operations and special ops has given it experience and edge in any future combat. Hezbollah losses in Syria have been very minimal compared to their 7 year involvement, however their success has provided them with a high quality recruitment bonanza. Hezbollah today is roughly the same size as the Iranian IRGC at over 125,000 full-time and part-time cadre and can mobilize another half a million men and women from the 2.5 million Lebanese Shia, Armenian, Assyrian and Christian communities. Hezbollah’s missiles arsenal now numbers over 200,000 rockets and missiles and cover twice the land size of Lebanon itself as it has spread out over Syria and Iraq. A fight with Hezbollah is a true nightmare for anyone.

that’s why pissrael and murican criminals are pissing themselves. they want all neighbors of israel to be defenseless. But since Hezbollah is the sheriff in town not just Lebanon but also in syria and iraq, they r super salty lol

Zionism = EVIL

True, Hezbollah will give Jew troll punks like Jacob Wohl faggots and lardass Americunts a free nose job and colonoscopy all for free at the same time :) I chased the nosey punk off the forum yesterday LOL

“….. I chased the nosey punk off the forum yesterday LOL”……………..Topman, keep it up ! I fuck him up too when ever the chance arises.

dutchnational

Fantasy numbers. It is highly unlikely Christians will join the sectarian Hezbollah in large numbers. To claim that of a total population, incl children and elderly, almost all will become Hezbollah fighters is beyond unbelievable. First over 50% are children. Discount 75% of the rest as elderly, disabled, or female or urgently needed elsewhere, then 200% of the remainder will be fighters.

Totally unbelievable.

Zionism = EVIL

Fuck off hasbara shitting troll ROFLMAO :)

Dontlietome

“Totally unbelievable.”………………much like you , you hasbara troll.

Bill Wilson

That’s nonsense. Hezbollah has around 25,000 soldiers and around 30,000 reservists. Their estimated losses since 2012 is over 2000 dead and over 4000 wounded, which is dangerously high for a small army. The Lebanese outside of Hezbollah’s control have no desire to join their ranks and rather see them leave their country for good. Assad and Russia also have plans to send Hezbollah and the Iranian militias home once they’re no longer needed. Hezbollah may have picked up some additional skills fighting in Syria but those have been used against poorly trained and armed militias so still wouldn’t stand a chance fighting off a determined and prolonged large scale assault by the vastly superior IDF and IAF. All Hezbollah has going for them is around 150,000 rockets which will become worthless as the IDF and IAF destroy their launchers.

Aussiebob

You obviously forgot who won the 2006 war! It definitely wasn’t Israel!

Dontlietome

“That’s nonsense.”…………………Not so Bungalow Bill………….The soldiers of the Hezbollah are so motivated, so well trained, that IDF spec ops. dread going up against them. The IDF is only good for shooting unarmed women and children, as is borne out in the MSM . In 2006, the Hezbollah gave the Israeli forces such a pasting that within 3 days, they were running home in their po-filled-pants. 46 Merkava’s were destroyed, and a lot of dead child-rapists……. that short conflict had cost the Israeli evil empire a lot of kiddie-fiddlers.

Neurasth

Hezbollah are no joke. They truly are elite fighters drilled to high standards

You can call me Al

… and they will not faff around if those terrorist scum mess about. I have a feeling that the end is nigh for the bastards now.

Zionism = EVIL

This is a must read book by Hezbollah’s #2 Naim Qassem. A unique insider’s view of one of the most important political parties and resistance group in the Middle East. The mandate of Hizbullah (“Party of God”) is laid out here for the first time in English by a high-ranking insider who has been an architect of Hezbollah’s policy formulation and intellect. The very truthful nature of Hizbullah’s insider narrative has unsettled the Zionist regime and its western backers and has been banned in US, UK and many puppet Arab countries. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/84875a9b18a276527e5d61de7bb43b0582875ee30da359bf0bb8ec07c0a9b658.jpg

Zionism = EVIL

Hezbollah, really has no equals in the world as even acknowledged by its enemies. The recent book by its co-leader Sayyed Naim Qassem was banned in both US and its UK poodles as it gave an insight into Hezbollah’s capabilities and strategies. Naim Qassem is the strategic brains behind Hezbollah and a very sound intellectual and warrior.

(Hezbollah): The Story from Within ( a complete and accurate insiders view of Hezbollah and its legend) by Sayyed Naim Qassem deputy leader of Hezbollah since its inception).

Thanks for thre recommendation. I found the book on kobo store in e format and purchased it.

King of Jerusalem

I dont think so Naieem Qasim has been disclose the Hidden capabilites of HZ it is against of HZ policy. So dont bleave on it yes you can red the book but the capabilites what he mentioned might be 1990 to 1999 but not he disclose the 2019 capabilites. If every one know the party then Zhonis easly start the war against HZ. So just chill to be red. I am sure that the Book have material but not War game engineering discussed. Naeem is a politicle figure he might be disclose the media war and print media war statiges. Share me after your completion

Jacob Wohl's Nose

damn right. It’s so funny seeing all these triggered indenial zionists pretending the IDF won the 2006 war XD (for example Rocket Nose wohl)

Nick Sobkowiak

“Rocket nose” hahaha holy shit man you are entertaining

klove and light

now we are getting serious………..

.this is 100% reaction by Iran and hezbollah to the recent turkish declaration of halting all iranian oil Imports by june 1 . 2019, hence supporting USA sanction Regime on Iran. IF this Information is correct, the astana bs council is dead and over…. Turkey is clearly protecting jihadis paradise (what anybody with ears and eyse knew months ago)in Idlib and hama with turkish TAF in several Areas……IF shiite Forces move in on hama and Idlib this will be a direct confrontation between turkish sunni Proxy Forces and shiite Forces of lebanon and Iran…I might add, I was hoping for this a while ago…… only then can/ will Turkey Show its true face…….but I quess , hezbollah and Iran are now sure on which side Turkey is on since the turkish declaration of halting all oil Sales from Iran by june 1. Ofcorse that also means, no iranian oil to syria via Turkey….direct oil flow from Iran to syria impossible due to blocade of suez canal for iranian oil shipments to syria…….just lastw eek southfront had a Story About the Energy Crisis in syria due to the halt in shipments from Iran, and wide spread Protests.

If anybody believes that all These Things ie. astana Agreements, Idlib demilitarized Zone(lol),halting of oil shipments is just a fucking coincidence…so be it……..but it clearly Shows a pattern of “disturbing” SAA Advance through out the Country…..INSTEAD of Fighting invading Forces…. making dozens of Agreements with those invading Forces, hence giving them protection…..either in Idlib or east syria…… for WHAT?? hoping they will someday call it a day and pack their bags…….totally ridulous……

SOONER or LATER…. SAA with or without their allied Forces will have to fight…aint no around that equation……the longer they wait..as seen in the past 6 months,, the more dug in the enemy will be as seen perfectly with turkish Forces and their proxies.TAF started out in afrin…..now they are spread out through out Idlib in 12 Military turkish installations.Mindboggling!!TAF is Building concrete walls/bunkers/bases all around Idlib as was shown in several southfront articles…and whether Folks like it or not……Russia should get the bill for this Fiasko……..because all this wise men Keep repeating the same old bs Story ,..Russia saved syria…..well then take a gooooood look at the map of syria may 2019..

syria is partitioned.PERIOD.thats a fact.period.

North-by turkish army and their sunni Islamist terrorists

East- by kurdish Forces in Agreement with the biggest arab clan of raqqa Province(Saudi Money) under the protection of NATO.

South- by Nato Forces.

The Point iam Always trying to make is simple and Logical……..

It is difficult enough to fight the assholes in the east, kurdish Forces under NATO air protection, and the USA NATO asshole Forces in the south…………….SO WHY THE FUCK MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT BY ALLOWING THAT NUMBER ONE ENEMY COUNTRY OF SYRIA , TURKEY, INVADE THE NORTH, WELL KNOWING THAT TURKEY SUPPORTS ALL JIHADI GROUPS WITH EVERYTHING THEY NEED, including Military Hardware,chemical compounds,amunition,intelligence,medical support including operations in turkish Hospitals……………that is the Question i would love to ask Putin and Assad!!

ps. the only sensical answer would be…we have a secret Agreement with the turkish governmnet, which will leave syria once all terrorists(that they support) are destroyed.then again…..still makes no sense…what has a TAF Invasion got to do with SAA and allied Forces Fighting sunni terrorism in syria…..

the only conclusiuon can be , that Russia is clearly playing a double game…like in Libya or in jemen… or for that matters like with Iran durinf the brutal Iran -iraq war….might i reming everybody, that ALL nations sold weapons to Saddam, including USA,russia,china,germany uk etc…. BUT NOT 1 sold weapons to Iran..This Point was also made by foreign Minister Zaif just 3 days ago, while mentioning Irans great self sufficiency in the Military Industry, that Comes from Iran not beiing able to buy weapons during that brutal 8 year onslaught. and hence was “forced” to make weapons themselves

Rob

To see the Turkey import from Iran to stop is such a sweet dream that only Washington and Netanyahu could watch.

Pave Way IV

“…SO WHY THE FUCK MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT BY ALLOWING THAT NUMBER ONE ENEMY COUNTRY OF SYRIA , TURKEY, INVADE THE NORTH…”

Wait… Russia allowed Turkey to invade the north? I don’t recall Turkey asking permission from Russia to do that. Nor do I recall Russia intending to start WWIII with Turkey over Syria. Erdogan is trying to save face before his eventual withdrawal – he knows he doesn’t get to ‘keep’ it, and so does Russia – they were pretty clear about that. Putin threw a bone to a yapping dog. He doesn’t have small-penis syndrome (like US leaders) that prevent him from making such deals in the near term if it supports the more important long-term goal of helping Syrians clear out head-choppers. .

Anyways, Turkey’s ‘invasion’ so far consists of isolated monitoring posts on key terrain and hollow threats to ‘defend’ them. Those posts were all in head-chopper controlled territory. Turkey didn’t take any (back then) Syrian government-controlled areas, did it? I don’t see how this Turkish ‘invasion’ has hindered ops in Idlib one bit so far. Everyone kind of ignores the Turkish observation posts, and they don’t make it a point to start trouble. They ‘observe’ – it’s all for show. And maybe to monitor for the eventual flood of head-choppers back into Turkey after Syria defeats them.

Barba_Papa

Not to mention that these Turkish observation posts are excellent place to shell or bomb ‘by accident’, so as to send Erdogan, that piece of shit (no insult to shit intended) a message. You couldn’t do that by shelling or bombing Turkish troops on Turkish soil. That would be an act of war. Also kinda really hard to sell that as a mistake.

dutchnational

Turkey seems to think US observation post are no impediment to an invasion but on the other hand that their observation post will inhibit SAA. One of the two assumptions is wrong.

Barba_Papa

Well, there’s always what politicians say and there’s always what politicians do. Obviously the US observation posts are working because Turkey has done what exactly to invade SDF territory. And obviously the Turkish observation posts are not working as the war in Idlib has reignited and Turkish observation posts get shelled with relative impunity.

Either US observation posts come with super duper special powers or Turkey talks a lot of shit. To paraphrase a certain German 19th century chancellor, Turkey has a big appetite, but such poor teeth.

Iran managed to deliver oil to Syria in May Both TankerTrackers and ClipperData have spotted a delivery of around 1 million barrels of crude oil from Iran into the Syrian port of Baniyas, home to Syria’s biggest refinery, in the first week of May. The tanker they had been tracking had at one point switched off its transponder—a tactic that analysts believe Iran will start using more often to ship and sell its oil ‘under the radar’.

dutchnational

Now that US is aware of the trick, they will follow by radar in combination with drones. Likely they will ask Israel and KSA to assist. It is not that hard to follow a large tanker by satelite too.

Zionism = EVIL

You must be the resident genius at the hasbara troll factory dumbass :)

Aussiebob

They can follow all they want! What are they gonna do about it tho? Exactly, nothing!!

gustavo

Turkey is a NATO member ¿ how could anyone expect different behavior ? The supposed differences between USA-Turkey, other NATO-Turkey is just theater, from my point of view.

Turkey was be able to stop SAA offensive on Idlib through Russia-Turkey agreement and the flirtings of Turkey to Russia (commercial agreements).

Excellent post

almasdar Breaking News-gooood news

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Minutes ago, over five Russian fighter jets began launching airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate following the collapse of ceasefire talks with Turkey. According to a military source in northwestern Syria, the ceasefire talks collapsed after Turkey demanded the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) withdraw from all the areas they captured in northwestern Hama.

The Russian military reportedly rejected Turkey’s demands and restarted their aerial campaign over the Idlib Governorate. The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) had already launched airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate on Thursday, but the Russian military had only carried out limited attacks due to their ceasefire talks with Turkey. The source added that the Syrian Army has yet to receive the green light to resume their ground offensive against the jihadist Forces.

Joe Dickson

How stupid is Russia to allow Turkey all of this time to arm and equip its terrorists in Idlib.

Jacob Wohl's Nose

Russia should ignore turkey completely. if turkey wants their s400, they should stay out of the Idlib situation and back down like good little donkeys. turkey needs Russia, not the other way around. torki cant keep their pet jihadis on leash so Russia needs to destroy them. simple.

Zionism = EVIL

Russia knows its strategic goals, the Turkeys are being played as always, there is an ancient proverb in Farsi for Turk dumbass donkeys, KHAR e TORK! BTW, Russia will be assembling 60 latest SU-35 at Isfahan as the Iranian Aviation Industry plant there the largest in the Middle East is being expanded.

Iran will sign a contract with Russia for the co-production of an undisclosed number of Russian-made Sukhoi Su-30 multirole fighter aircraft, Fars News Agency reports. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eivhd8h1Xyk

Real Anti-Racist Action

Russia should announce to the Turks that they have a ceasefire plan that will work this time and last. Russia should tell the Turks that soon a battle to the complete death of either the terrorist or the SAA and their allies will commence. And that after the battle there will be no more fighting in the area, as everyone on at least one side of the battle will be dead. This is my idea of a lasting ceasefire that will greatly help stabilize the region.

gustavo

Russia must stop pleasing Turkey (NATO member) on Idlib area and allow Syria-Russia-hezbollah-Iran ground troops to carry out the offensive needed to get rid of terrorists and Turkish at Idlib. Putin must say not to Erdogan, point. Turkey is an invader in Syria and must go back home.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

putin should tell erdodog if he wants his S-400, he needs to give up idlib, because turkey needs russia, not the other way around, as another commenter here stated

Zionism = EVIL

ErDOG only takes orders from his Zionist parasitic masters and Americunts.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

maybe, but this is a separate matter between russia and turkey

dutchnational

Still wondering which victories as Hezbollah had only defeats against Israel. The withdrawal of Israel from Lebanon was a tactical retreat, not a defeat. Unless, as so many arabs do, they count not being defeated as a win.

Zionism = EVIL

Dumbass hasbara troll “dutch national” more like a Jew faggot at the hasbara troll factory arsehole :)

I totally agree with you. I always agree with foulmouthed trolls. Whatever you say, or mouthfart, you are right. Ok, little one?

2006 Israel got an ass whooping! Had to resort to bombing innocent civilians because they couldn’t beat Hezbollah

Lena Jones

Duhh earth to dutchnational, earth to dutchnational (who is a stinking hasbara operating out of tel aviv)! If the Hezb had not kicked jew ass bigly and multiple times, last being back in 2006, the klepto terrorist jew army/idf would already have invaded puny Lebanon. BUT THEY HAVEN’T. So stfu with your falsification of history lol! Fact is, jews piss and shit in their pants at the very thought of having to confront hezbollah on the battle field ever again lol!

Mustafa Mehmet

What victory? Molla style

Lena Jones

The victory that’s about to happen in Idlib where hezbollah kicks your sorry-assed terrorist pals there. That’s just ONE victory coming to your screens soon. Old Hezb victories are on multiple battlefields- a simple google will reveal them to your lazy mind.

d'Artagnan

Hezbollah, already a formidable military machine will come out of the US sponsored headchopper Syrian terror campaign as one of the most battle tested and combat capable military force par excellence!

Xoli Xoli

Why dont we call them spy and not activist.Their disclosed secret military operations.But anyway Iran and Hizbollah power with tactical and systemic operation assault is on ground. Know Syrian special forces and Tigers must enter and liberate Idlib.Air defences of Syria must be on high alert 24/7 twenty four seven.Because Israeli wants to hijack the opportunity to disrupted operations as usual.Encourage terrorists who fights because of Erdogan pressure to flee to government held areas and surrender.

Jacob Wohl's Nose

SAA + Tiger Forces, 4th mechanized, 5th Corps combined with Hezbollah/Iranian militias + Syrian Airforce + Russian Airforce/Navy = complete destruction of erdogan’s jihadis and victory for Syria Rocket Nose will be super mad XD

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

oh boy, if i was a jihadist rat, and thank God im not, i would be running for my lifefrom these iranian/hezb forces!!!

Mustafa Mehmet

So you r chicken then

Willing Conscience (The Truths

“If the Turkish efforts fail, Hezbollah and Iranian-backed forces could support a new SAA ground attack in northern Hama”. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL WTF LIARS Assad and the SAA are ignoring Putin, Iran and Erdogan’s ceasefire agreement [Astana] and attacking the rebels despite it, and I think this is their [Putin Erdogan Iran] answer to Assad’s obstinance. I wonder what Turkey would do without Iranian oil, apart from the fact no one’s allowed to sell it to them due to US sanctions, even if they could get it elsewhere it would way way pricer than the cheap Iranian crude. And what about Iran, due to Us sanctions they can’t sell their oil to anyone else, well not easily anyway, they need the Turkish oil revenue as much as the Turks need their oil, it seems they’d be lost without each other now. And the Iranian regular forces and Hezbollah are possibly going to join the SAA in an assault if the talks fail, mmmm, as much as I’d love that to be true I’m finding it very highly improbable, with everything that’s been happening lately I’m even thinking it’s more likely the Iranians and Hezbollah will try to stop the SAA attacking the rebels and Turks, not militarily, just do what the Turkish OB posts already do, that would be enough to stop them attacking the rebels. If that happens my SF post will become vicious, really vicious, it better not for everyone’s sake president Putin.

King of Jerusalem

The Final battle has been started since 2006 between evils vs Men of God. All will give the victory to HZ and zhonist will soon enjoy in Hell. Plastine is My heart, Lannat br Zonist.
