Iranian-backed forces, including Lebanon’s Hezbollah, are establishing dozens of positions south of the Syrian capital, Damascus, Zaman al-Wasl reported on March 25.

According to the pro-opposition outlet, the new positions include barracks, training camps, intelligence bases, technical workshops and a drone base. All the positions are allegedly located near the Shiite-majority area of Set Zaynab.

The outlet revealed one of the positions, a supposed “drone base” located 5 km to the south of Set Zaynab. The base is supposedly being operated by Hezbollah and hosting several Iranian-made Muhajir-4 drones.

Zaman al-Wasl contradicted its own narrative by acknowledging that the supposed “drone base” is actually a training facility of the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate (AFID) that was established more than 8 years ago.

The highly-questionable report lacked any credible information about any of the other “Iranian positions” in southern Damascus.

Zaman al-Wasl’s report was likely nothing but a propaganda piece meant to magnify the activities of Iranian forces in Syria, possibly to provoke new Israeli attacks on Damascus.
