I spoke to a (secular) childhood friend of mine from Baysur. He told me that Hizbullah managed to boost the popularity of Jumblat among Druzes from 90% of all Druzes, to 99% of all Druzes. He said that some fighters with pro-Syrian groups (like Wi’am Wahhab and Talal Arsalan) defected and joined Jumblat’s party during the fighting.
