(1) The danger of believing your own propaganda.

(2) "Among the many high-end formations deployed by the Syrian Arab Army and allied paramilitary groups in the province of Deir Ezzor to defend recently retaken cities, towns and villages along the western bank of the Euphrates River from ISIS..."
(3) "Is a powerful Syrian Hezbollah force with countless years of experience on the battlefield."
(4) Iran trained these men.
(5) The late Hossein Hamadani made it a priority.

(6) "Beginning in 2014, various Syrian Shiite militias began to call themselves "Hezbollah fi Suriya" (Hezbollah in Syria), and the geographical and numerical presence of the country's Twelver Shiite community greatly affected this umbrella network's development."
(7) So how do this "high end" group perform in battle after three years of experience?
(8) It's beyond belief.

(9) They appear to have no training at all.
(10) I have videos that I won't upload because they're too gruesome, but they show that ALL branches of Hezbollah have terrible training.
(11) The driver of this Hezbollah BMP infantry fighting vehicle unloaded the men directly into enemy fire.

All the men were instantly killed, and then the vehicle was destroyed with a missile.
(12) Hezbollah repeated this maneuver at least ten times.

The video shows that a TWO-MAN commando team armed with rockets destroyed an entire company of Hezbollah mechanized infantry.
(13) Hezbollah had a T-72 tank.

A rocket exploded in front of the tank and knocked it out (lower left corner).
(15) Maybe a dozen armored vehicles were destroyed.

By two men.
(16) The men firing rockets skipped them off the ground so that they hit the underside of the armored vehicles.

1. Man stands.
2. Man fires.
3. Rocket hits ground.
4. Rocket hits underside of vehicle, destroying it.
(17) Hezbollah uses armored ambulances as troop carriers.

The commandos destroyed them without hesitation.
(18) Some of you may remember how I told you that from May to August of 2015, only 50 Emirati and Saudi-trained Yemeni commandos held off 40,000 Houthis.

This is how they did it.
(19) An entire company of Hezbollah mechanized infantry and its armor was destroyed by two men.

All they had was rockets and machine guns.
(20) After the mullahs are removed from power, we'll find that their capabilities were almost nonexistent.

We can thank the western press and western leaders for keeping the mullahs in power for so long...
(21) ADDENDUM: YouTube deleted all the videos that show Hezbollah's attack on the Aeronautical Technical College on August 24, 2016.

I found more screen grabs.
(22) This BMP infantry fighting vehicle is unloading Hezbollah fighters directly into enemy fire.

The men are falling into a pile, killed immediately.

The arrows show two strikes from heavy machine-gun rounds.
(23) The field is littered with Hezbollah dead.

One man runs away (red arrow).

The circles in the earth show that the armored vehicles TURNED AROUND to unload the fighters into enemy fire.
(24) Another pile of dead.
(25) Hezbollah ran into the building on the lower right.

The rocket gunner is behind the building on the left.

1. Commando watching the rocket gunner.
2. Rocket back blast.
3. Rocket hits.
4. Hezbollah in the building is killed.
(26) The two men who destroyed the entire Hezbollah mechanized infantry company...
