  Summary of Events   The regime is preparing for a massive military operation in the Damascus suburb of Zabadani after its residents, assisted by defected soldiers, succeeded in pushing back the Fourth Regiment. Over 250 Hezbollah militiamen have gathered in the Lebanese town of Yahfufa, which is 5 kms away from Zabadani, prepared to flank the ranks of the rebels. The area of Zabadani is of utmost strategic importance to the regime as many important lines run through it, such as the Damascus-Beirut highway, Syrian electric towers connecting Lebanon with power, and the routes for smugglers dealing with arms, oil, and general goods.   The Syrian Army launched another military operation targeting the city of Hama. The city was invaded from more than an axis and sweeping operations were conducted in the areas of Hader and Alamain. Many soldiers defected and clashed with Assad loyalists after they were ordered to open fire at the residents of Bab Qabli. The commander of the operation, Deputy Military Intelligence Director, Adel Mustafa, was killed along with his Deputy Jouma Khaled al-Nimr and eight other security personnel.

  Security forces killed at least 24 people today; most fell in Homs and Jabal al-Zawiya in Idlib where the regime deployed many armoured units and Hezbollah militiamen, who were recognized by their yellow shoulder tags and black clothing. In Kafartakhrim, the Syrian Army recalled its reinforcements that were scheduled to arrive from the town of Armanaz, after residents threatened the Army Commander with arming the demonstrations following the wrecking by Assad’s forces of dozens of houses and commercial establishments.   An armed car exploded in the neighbourhood of Maidan downtown Damascus today, while the residents were preparing banners for tomorrow’s massive Friday demonstration. The car belongs to security personnel who lost his legs after the car exploded upon his attempt to open its door.
