Hezbollah forces kill dozen Takfiri Terrorists
Fighters from Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistant movement have killed at least a dozen terrorists from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front group in eastern Lebanon.
Lebanese satellite television station al-Manar reported that the fighters, who engaged in heavy battle with the terrorists near al-Tufail and Brital towns close to the eastern mountain range near the border with Syria, have also destroyed many vehicles used by the terrorists.
The report came after Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naeem Qassem said earlier on Tuesday that the fighters were getting prepared to clear the strategic Qalamoun region of the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.
Hezbollah fighters alongside the Syrian army forces are aiming to gain full control of the eastern Lebanon mountain range, security forces say.
Reports also say that the military arrangements for the battle for the eastern mountain range near the border with Syria have almost finished.
The sources said the Syrian army has brought a number of rocket launchers, artillery batteries and cannons and has deployed them in strategic areas and hills in the Syrian town of Zabadani, close to the border with Lebanon.
“This battle is the battle of protecting Lebanese villages and preventing Takfiris from expanding and achieving their goals,” the senior Hezbollah official said.
Over the past months, Lebanon has witnessed an increase in terrorists’ activities on the border with Syria, suffering from attacks by al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists as well as the ISIL terrorists.
