Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

TRANSLATED: Southern Daraa front will witness “mother of all battles”

Excerpted from today’s Daily Briefing:

On March 3, the Qatari-owned Al-Quds al-Arabi daily carried the following report by its correspondent in Rif Daraa Kamel Sakr: “The strategic Al-Hara Hill can clearly be seen with the naked eye from the town of Hamrit, which separates Rif Qoneitra and Rif Daraa. And Hezbollah’s fighters can also see it with the naked eye and with their military binoculars, and they will soon head to it with the Syrian army troops to re-seize it from the fighters of An-Nusra Front. Hence, the southern Daraa Front will witness “the mother of all battles” in Al-Hara Hill, as Hezbollah’s fighters are waiting for the go-order to participate in its liberation. This battle will also be an opportunity to test the nature of the confrontation on the Syrian southern front, considering that the high hill overlooks the separation line with the Israeli entity, and Hezbollah’s fighters will be at a stone’s throw away from the Israeli soldiers, but along the Syrian front this time around.
