Hezbollah Wins Control of 80 Percent of Heights at Lebanon-Syria Border
The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news network said that the resistance forces have thus far imposed control over almost 80 percent of Arsal heights adjacent to the town of Arsal after four days of non-stop battle with terrorists.
Terrorists are only in five regions of Wadi al-Kabir, Wadi Hamid, Khirbet Unin, Sahal Ajram and al-Malahi regions in Arsal heights, al-Mayadeen added.
In the meantime, the commanders of Hezbollah forces in Arsal called on the remaining pockets of the terrorists in Arsal heights to hand over their arms and surrender to the relevant officials to prevent more bloodshed.
Earlier reports said that the Lebanese Hezbollah troops stormed the positions of the Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in Arsal heights from several directions and managed to impose control over more positions.
The resistance fighters carried out a large-scale offensive hitting one of the most important strongholds of Al-Nusra in Wadi al-Kheil in Arsal heights and drove the terrorists out of the region.
In the meantime, the Hezbollah fighters continued their advances and won back Wadi al-Ma’isarah position and Qal’ah al-Hassan overlooking al-Zamarani-Wadi Ma’arouf triangle, Wadi Kahil, Wadi Za’arour, Wadi al-Dam and Wadi al-Daqaeq.
A military source also said that the Hezbollah fighters have prevailed over the Al-Nusra’s defense lines and the terrorists front has collapsed.
