The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Hezbollah and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are storming the Syrian border city of al-Bukamal from 3 directions.
On November 16, the SAA, the IRGC and Hezbollah engaged ISIS members in the northwestern, western and southeastern parts of al-Bukamal. However, pro-government forces faced a strong resistance from ISIS.
On the same day, the Hezbollah media wing in Syria claimed that the US-led coalition is hindering the SAA efforts to establish control over al-Bukamal. The coalition is reportedly jamming the SAA communications and even blocking some part of the airspace over al-Bukamal.
