Militias loyal to Hezbollah and Iran continue to recruit tens of people in Daraa raising their number of to 2660 in Syrian south

The Syrian south in general and Daraa province in particular is witnessing the continuation of converting to Shi’ism by godfathers working for the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iranians, where the Syrian Observatory monitored the expansion of the recruiting young men, civilians, or former fighters of the factions, who carried out “reconciliations and settlements” with material temptations, exploiting the poor living conditions of Daraa Province under the control of the regime forces and their militias, and the Syrian Observatory learned that tens of people from Daraa have joined the pro-Iranian militias and Hezbollah after being in training camps east of Daraa, where a new batch of them was graduated within al-Lajat area, which became a fertile ground for camps of the Iranian militia and Hezbollah to recruit young men in their ranks and training them, keeping the people of Daraa province between the hammer of the Russians and the anvil of the Iranians and Hezbollah, not to mention the inability of the regime forces in controlling the escalating security chaos in the province, which is living dire humanitarian conditions, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights documented that more than 2660 people have so far volunteers in the Syrian southern.

And the Syrian Observatory published in the past several weeks that the Syrian south also witnessed extensive volunteer operations by the Iranian forces, who returned after their military withdrawal in the form of recruitment campaigns in their ranks for the Syrian members, in addition to attempting to converting people to “Shi’ism” by paying salaries, also members of the Iranian forces have been seen repeatedly wandering in the countryside of Daraa and Quneitra, while Russia is working to escalate the process of excluding the Iranians from decision-making positions and controlling the Syrian details, by trying to stop the Iranians in the Syrian coast and the countryside Homs and Hama, and by sizing the Iranian role in Idlib and Aleppo Province, but the widespread Iranian deployment on the military, ideological, and sectarian levels prevents the Russians from stopping the Iranians for the time being, despite the global trend and the Arab trend in particular to fight the Iranian presence especially on the Syrian soil, while Turkey is balancing its relations with the Iranian side greatly.

Where the Syrian Observatory monitored that this enlisting includes both former defected members of the regime forces and those wishing to “settle their situation,” as well as former fighters in ranks of regime’s opponents, and other citizens the sources said that most of them were from al-Quriyah area in the countryside of al-Mayadin city, the sources told the Syrian Observatory that the process of luring the citizens to come was through a monthly salary, and letting them choosing the place of service between going to the battlefronts or stay at the training center west of Euphrates River, in addition to the immunity from the regime forces and from being arrested, where they are enlisted for monthly salaries vary from west of Euphrates to the south of Syria, where these salaries start from US $ 150 to about US $ 300, depending on its proximity to the Syrian border with the occupied Syrian Golan, where the salary increases as the distance to the occupied Syrian Golan gets closer, also the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored continuous attempts by the Iranians to entice civilians in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor on the road to Tehran – Beirut, trying to establish an popular base in the area, which will prevent the loss of the strategic road between Iranian capital Tehran and the Lebanese capital Beirut, which is used by the Iranian forces mainly. these enticing attempts come through their attempts to return the rights of the residents, of those whose belongings were seized by volunteers and conscripts in the Iranian militias, to earn the love of the population and satisfy them and to push them to join their ranks, they also distribute food, clothes, blankets, and other daily tools and study tools, all of them have Persian writings, and the Iranian forces through their spreading are preventing the regime forces from abusing the population and return their belongings to them, where the people now go to the Iranian forces to get back their stolen property taken rights by the regime forces and the militiamen loyal to them.
