Forces commanded by Hezbollah and Iran are facing Israel along the Golan Heights border and are being used as sources of tactical information, according to a report on the Nziv.net news site.
Hezbollah began returning home to Lebanon after fighting in the Syrian civil war for some eight years, the report said. The fighters, though worn out from the years of intense battle in Syria, were positioned by Iran on the border and tasked with being the “eyes and ears” for the Iranian High Command under the leadership of General Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
The goal is for these troops to provide tactical intelligence on what is happening on both sides of the border.
The report further explained that an additional brigade of Shi’ite fighters was formed. It is comprised of men from Hezbollah, the Iraqi al-Hashd al-Shaabi, Afghani forces and villagers from north Syria. These men are now situated in the Jezreel Valley, north east of the southern Syrian capital Daraa. They will remain in Syria to watch the southeastern Syrian-Israel border.
