The Popular Resistance announced it was expanding its anti-regime operations in southern Syrian to include the Qalamoun region northwest of Damascus. The Resistance said it attacked a convoy of the Hezbollah Militia on Monday evening, destroying three vehicles and injuring the militants inside.
In a statement on its page on Facebook, the Resistance said that its fighters ambushed a convoy of the Lebanese Hezbollah Militia while it was travelling on a mountain road in the Qalamoun region.
The attack, the first of its kind in an area controlled by the Hezbollah Militia in Qalamoun, came a few weeks after the start of similar attacks against regime forces in Damascus and its suburbs. A group of men from the Qalamoun region earlier announced the formation of Ansar al-Haq Brigade under the command of the Popular Resistance Brigades.
In rural Dara’a, clashes renewed in the town of Sanamein after fighters of the Popular Resistance attacked headquarters of the Criminal Security Branch and a checkpoint manned by regime forces, with reports about casualties among regime forces.
According to local sources, the attack began with the Popular Resistance fighters throwing hand grenades on regime forces which was followed by heavy gunfire that lasted around 20 minutes.
The Popular Resistance Brigade was formed last year in Dara’a shortly after the province fell to regime forces. Its fighters carried out a series of daring attacks against the Assad regime positions, targeting checkpoints, security detachments, and security and military headquarters.
