Activist Ali Diab told NOW on Monday that the Unified Military Command in Qalamoun had killed 27 Hezbollah members as they tried to enter Syria.

“The Unified Military Command in Qalamoun killed 27 Hezbollah members as they tried to enter [Syria] from the Al-Sahal crossing,” Diab told NOW from Yabrud.

Diab added that the rebel fighters had destroyed two regime tanks, prompting the regime to retaliate by shelling the area surrounding the villages of Al-Sahal and Jarajir.
