Iran's IRGC Founded New Pro-Government Armed Group In Southern Syria - Al-Arabiya TV

The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has founded a new pro-government armed group in Daraa governorate in southern Syria, the Saudi state-run medi outlet al-Arabiya TV reported on November 9.

Al-Arabiya TV said that the new group is named the 313 Brigade, the number 313 is a holy number for Shiites. The report added that all the fighters of the new armed groups are exclusively Shiites from Daraa governorate. The new group is supposedly based in Izraa town in the northern Daraa countryside, only 39km east of the frontline with Israel in the Golan Heights.

If al-Arabiya claims are true, the position of the new Iranian-backed armed force violates the Russia-American ceasefire agreement that was reached in Hamburg on July 9. Several media outlets claim that according to the agreement Iranian-backed forces are not allowed within 35km from the frontline with Israel. However, this condition was never confirmed by any official source.

South Front contacted several SAA officers and soldiers in Daraa governorate to verify al-Arabiya’s claims. They all denied that such Iranian-backed armed group was established in Izraa town. The officers and soldiers told South Front that the National Defense Forces (NDF) are the only force beside the SAA in Daraa now.

South Front couldn’t also find any accounts that’s linked to the supposedly newly founded 313 Brigade on any social media website. However, after a quick search we found out that the Saudi state news TV channel was the first to claim that Iran founded such group named “313 Brigade” on November 7.

This raises a serious question about the credibility of al-Arabiya’s report. The Saudi-owned TV channel didn’t mention its sources and it’s obvious that Saudi media outlets are now involved in a media war against Iran.

    This is very interesting news. 313 would not be in the town as they would expect Israel to attack and kill civilians. They would be somewhere in an obscure area outside of there or perhaps another 30 km away. Could also be that it was Iran that started the rummer to rattle Israel and Saudi Arabia. We should expect Iran to grow forces near the Golan

    Hello, i had 2 friends (only on facebook) activly operating in this 313 . one of them was/is a commander that has been wonded in Latakia region and saved by Shabiha(as he posted in a picture on his FB profile).
    What i can testify is :
    – It is a formation that is more than 2 years and half old.
    – A lot of them are Shiaa Muslims
    – Most of them are from Latakia (not Daraa)
    – During the liberation of Aleppo they were just behind Liwa/Brigade Al Quds
    – Part of them are volunteers

    The author of this article may have missed reading the article. Look at the contradiction in it.

    #1- “Only 39km east of the frontline with Israel in the Golan Heights”.

    #2- “If al-Arabiya claims are true, the position of the new Iranian-backed armed force violates the Russia-American ceasefire agreement that was reached in Hamburg on July 9. Several media outlets claim that according to the agreement Iranian-backed forces are not allowed within 35km from the front-line with Israel”.

    If they are 39km away from Israel, then they are legally outside of the 35km buffer zone from Israel.
    What is all the hype about? They are over 35km away from Israel just as Russia said they would be.

    There are no rules when fighting the zio Yanks, so I wish 313 the best of luck (unless it is yet another stitch up and reason to attack Iran).

    Al Arabiya (Arabic: العربية‎‎, transliterated: al-ʿArabiyyah or al-ʻArabīyah; meaning “The Arabic One” or “The Arab One”[a]) is a Saudi-owned pan-Arab[4] television news channel broadcast in Modern Standard Arabic. The channel is based in Dubai and is regarded as a competitor to Al Jazeera.

    OK – it is a stupid, pathetic, childish stitch up in my view by the Wahhabis.

    Looks like they (Saudis + Israeli terrorists) are preparing for a false flag to be committed by this fake non-existence group they made up and associated with Iran.
