Daraa - SMART

The Lebanese Hezbollah militia clashed with the Jaysh al-Ababel of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), wounding three members of Hezbollah and two fighters of the Jaysh al-Ababel, near the village of Zomrin, 50 kilometers north of Daraa, Southern Syria.

Hezbollah is a Lebanese sectarian militia classified as a terrorist group by several Arab and Western countries. It has been fighting alongside the Syrian loyalist forces against peaceful movements since March 2013. Reports and investigations indicate strong evidence of Hezbollah's responsibility for the assassination of the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in Beirut in February 2005.

The military office of the Jaysh al-Ababel told SMART that on Monday night and Tuesday morning clashes broke out after their fighters discovered a group of the Hezbollah members trying to infiltrate the town's outskirts to plant explosive devices. The clashes resulted in injuries in the ranks of both parties, while the FSA seized the explosive devices.

The clashes coincided with the mobilization of the Syrian loyalist forces stationed in the Jaddiyah battalion and Tel Zeban, where they shelled the villages of Zomrin and Umm al-Ausaj, to ease the suffering of the loyalist group that withdrew after the siege. No injuries to civilians were reported.

The military office of the Jaysh al-Ababel pointed out that Hezbollah's aim by planting the explosive devices was to "hit the FSA supply in the region."

FSA commanders and fighters are assassinated on a regular basis in Daraa, often by use of explosive devices. The latest assassination was the killing of a commander of the Khalifa Omar Brigade by an explosive device at the junction of the town of Semlin.
