Iranian-Russian conflict | Leader of Russian-backed military formation accuses Iran and Hezbollah of “deceiving people of Al-Suwaidaa for serving Iran’s schemes”
After the dramatic military escalation in “Al-Arab Mountain” and “Hawaran Plain” in the western countryside of Al-Suwaidaa, “Ahmed Al-Ouda” the leader of the 8th Brigade of the Russian-backed 5th Corps appeared in a video footage, of which the Syrian Observatory obtained a copy, talking about these dramatic developments.
“Al-Ouda” accused Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah of “supporting armed gangs in Al-Suwaidaa in order to wreak havoc and help them with the Iranian schemes in southern Syria region”.
“We had to think rationally and logically in order to defuse the disagreement between the adjacent provinces of Daraa and Al-Suwaidaa, but the plots of mercenaries were stronger than the wise people’s efforts” the Russian-backed commander added.
“Al-Ouda” concluded his statement saying “we will be like sharp swords eliminating every one serving to stir up strife and fighting.”
It is worth noting that at least 28 gunmen were killed and tens others were injured in the bloody clashes in western Al-Suwaidaa, near the administrative border with Daraa province, between the NDF and local factions from Al-Suwaidaa province on one hand, and the Russian-backed 5th Corps on the other.
