Hezbollah fighters have killed scores of Takfiri militants after the gunmen crossed from crisis-hit Syria into eastern Lebanon and attacked the Lebanese resistance movement’s posts.
A Hezbollah source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the movement’s posts in the mountains around Nabi Sbat, situated east of the town of Baalbek in the Beqaa Valley, were attacked by armed groups who came from Syria’s mountainous Qalamoun region along the border with neighboring Lebanon, PRESS TV reported.
Major attack carried out on Sunday by takfiri terrorist groups in the eastern mount of Lebanon at Brital barrens in east of Lebanon.
Al-Manar TV correspondent reported that hundreds of terrorist gunmen tried to storm the Ein-Assa’ area of Brital barrens on the Lebanese borders with Syria, exactly located over Nabi-Sbat town south of the main city of Baalbeck.
Lebanese army artillery in the region is involved in fighting off the attack and scores of takfiris are left killed and wounded so far.
Clashes are still ongoing in the meantime.
Annahar local newspaper reported that militants of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) and Al-Qaeda-affilite Al-Nusra Front internationally-recognized terrorist groups have moved from the barrens of the eastern Lebanese town of Arsal where they are located several months ago.
The militants passed by the border Syrian town of Asal Al-Wared, and carried out their attack against Lebanon through different fronts of Brital barrens, the daily added.
Al-Mayadden news network reporter said that the goal of the gunmen who tried to infiltrate into the eastern chain of Lebanon is to open a gap between Qalamoun barrens and Zabadani on the Syrian border with Lebanon, following their bad need to weapons and ammunition.
Takfiri terrorists of the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) and Al-Qaeda-affilite Al-Nusra Front internationally-recognized terrorist groups, along with other armed terrorists, used to fire their rockets of hatred on the peaceful residential towns, and to try to storm the Lebanese towns on the border with Syria.
