Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - Hezbollah forces fighting in Syria are advancing southwards towards the border town of Deraa on the Syrian-Jordanian borders, a source affiliated with Hezbollah said.

Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah fighting forces are sent to Syria to fight alongside the Syrian regime's military, including a comprehensive logistics team from Hezbollah's Military chiefs of staff that manage the transport, movement, and weapons supplies of the fighters in Syria, the source told the Kuwaiti-based Qabas newspaper.

The source added that Hezbollah fighting units "played a major role" in Syrian Army's reclaiming of the town of Khirbat Ghazalah, a strategic location on the interstate between Damascus and Deraa, in southern Syria near the Jordanian border.

Bashar al-Assad's regime forces clashed with rebel fighters near the insurgent-held Qusayr in central Syria on Monday, backed by pro-regime militia and Hezbollah fighters, AFP reported.

Hezbollah repeatedly stressed its support to Assad's regime, and is backing Syrian forces with fighting units and weapons supplies, particularly in the towns on the Lebanese-Syrian border, in the crisis that has claimed the lives of over 100,000 people and displaced millions.
