ISIL Terrorists Continue to Surrender to Hezbollah in Heights at Syria-Lebanon Border
“ISIL militants began to surrender in Qalamoun (mountains in Arsal region bordering Syria) near the al-Zamrani checkpoint after the checkpoint came under the full control of Hezbollah,” the sources said.
Earlier reports said that Ahmad Vahid al-Abd, a notorious field commander of ISIL, surrendered to the Syrian Army troops and Hezbollah after the terrorist group suffered heavy defeats in battle with the government forces in Western Qalamoun heights.
The Syrian soldiers and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters continued their operation in al-Jarajeer and Qareh heights in Western Qalamoun and imposed full control over Harf Makbash, Tal Masideh, Wadi al-Hamra, Khirbet al-Hamra, Sho’abh Beit Omar’ei, Qal’at al-Hammam, Harf Wadi Farah, Ra’as Sho’abah Maqarah, Qarnah Shamis Dawar Khanjar, Sho’abah al-Sowqi, Wadi Dawar Khanjar, Shamis al-Zamrani and Thanaya al-Hariq heights.
The army men and Hezbollah combatants, meantime, imposed full control over the strategic Mount al-Mosul in al-Brij Heights overlooking Fikheh and Mira passageways after hours of heavy fighting with ISIL.
Several groups of ISIL surrendered to the Syrian pro-government forces deployed in al-Zamrani passageway that is under the army’s control now after the latters’ advances in Western Qalamoun.
In the meantime, Ahmad Vahid al-Abd, the ISIL’s commander in al-Zamrani, along with his forces, handed over their arms and equipment and surrendered to the army.
