The Syrian Coalition highly praises the valor and determination of Zabadani rebels who are defending the town against the Assad regime and Hezbollah’s onslaught. It also commends rebel fighters elsewhere in Syria who escalated military operations against regime forces to ease pressure on their comrades in Zabadani.
The Syrian Coalition points out that Iranian negotiators insisted on displacing civilians from Zabadani and nearby areas to resettle their mercenaries thus transforming it into a pro-regime stronghold. “Iran seeks to implement its sectarian project in Syria through changing the demography of many areas in Syria.”
“Despite the heavy losses and seatbacks on multiple fronts across Syria, the Assad regime and the Hezbollah militia have always tried to appear as victors. They have so far failed to capture Zabadani in spite of their aerial supremacy and the hundreds of barrel bombs and missiles they rained on the town. The heroic resistance shown by Zabadani rebels provide another proof that the Syrian revolution will be victorious whatever the conspiracies and challenges.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
