Strengthen Iranian Presence | Hezbollah and Revolutionary Guards boost their presence south and west Damascus

Reliable sources have informed SOHR that Lebanese “Hezbollah” has begun digging and expanding an old military base previously used by the regime forces to conduct flying training with reconnaissance aircraft and as air force intelligence centre training for live-firing drills, in an area near Khirbet Al-Ward village near Al- Sayyidah Zainab area south of Damascus, where Lebanese “Hezbollah” has been located since 2015.

 

According to Syrian Observatory sources, over the past few days, Lebanese “Hezbollah” began digging “potholes and basements” in the base where its experts and members are stationed. Hezbollah also concealed Iranian-made drones in “basements and potholes” that had previously dug for fear of being targeted by Israel. Members of Hezbollah also kicked farmers out of their lands that are near the base for fear of filming them while digging.

 

Shipments of weapons, ammunition, and parts to manufacture drones had been arrived at Dimas military airport in the western countryside of Damascus at Tifor airport in Homs countryside, SOHR reliable sources reported.

It is worth noting that Iran and its backed militias have almost completely controlled Dimas military airport during the recent period.

 

Moreover, Hezbollah members are conducting drilling operations in and around the airport to store strategic weapons brought by Iran to the area close to the Syrian-Lebanese border, Syrian Observatory sources said experts from Iran’s “Revolutionary Guard” and some experts from Lebanon’s Hezbollah who have trained in Iran are there in Dimas airport.

 

We, at SOHR, renew our call upon all international actors to intensify their efforts to expel Iran and its proxies from Syria and bring to justice all who aided and abetted the killing and displacement of Syrian people
