#Iran 🇮🇷: #IRGC "#Saberin Special Forces" relesed a video of their training during snowy terrains after the #Hezbollah's video.

The unit seems to be armed with Iranian Sayyad 5.56 rifles (M16 copies), PKM-T80 machine guns, Sa'aban-1 LMG (modified RPK) and "Ashtara" sniper rifle.
As usual, the unit seems to be using Iranian weapons mostly.
The video is very similar to the video released by the Radwan Unit in #Lebanon.

The video shows various interesting scenes including usage of snowmobiles & skis along with shooting and hand-to-hand combat trainings.

In general, the unit appears to be using 5.45x39mm AK-74 & AK-74M rifles mostly —sourced from #Syria.

Rifles seem to be equipped with various scopes and accessories including Aimpoint CompM4 RDS, 1-6x24 scope, GP-25 UBGL, UAS-AK stock and FAB Defense GL-CORE AR15 stock

In addition to these an AKS-74U carbine and PKM machine gun can be seen as well.

How the 🇮🇱Israeli defense deals with the threat of #Hezbollah's precision missiles.
In its annual report, the Institute for National Security Studies placed the probability of war in #Lebanon in the first place, higher than the Iranian threat. 1
The latest name given by experts to this war, in publications and exercises, is "First Northern War" - assuming the war does not remain #Lebanese. #Syria (and possibly #Iraq) as well: 2
Syria itself may act against Israel to retaliate against Iran and Hezbollah for the generous assistance it provided during the civil war, and missile rockets may be fired from #Shiite militias from Iraq, and perhaps even by the #Houthis in Iran. 3

@zamanalwsl recordings reveal direct confrontations between #Hezbollah & #TSK in S. #Idlib and #Saraqeb. Hezb fighters talk about 10+ KIA and inflicting heavy damage vs #Turkish forces (90+) when they pinned down their convoy. #TSK artillery managed to break Hezbollah's attacks.
On the #Saraqeb front, #Hezbollah fighters are suffering from #TSK artillery and drone attacks, according to the recordings. The fighter says #Russia has 'sat this fight out'. The death toll, initially set at 10, isn't final as many of their men 'are still under the rubble'.
The recordings are likely to be true. On 14 Feb, a Beirut contact mentioned that #Hezbollah will deploy 1000+ men of its Special #Radwan Forces with armour to the fighting in N. #Syria. (not including the ones already fighting since the beginning of the W. #Aleppo offensive)
