The fighters of Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah have recaptured border heights in the Lebanese town of Arsal from terrorists.
In their operations in the Lebanese town on Wednesday, the Hezbollah fighters managed to clear the border heights of Majr al-Hamra and Shamis al-Hamra of the terrorists.
A large number of terrorists were killed and injured in the operations in Arsal, which lies about 124 kilometers (77 miles) northeast of the capital, Beirut.
There has been no report yet on the group the terrorists belonged to.
Hezbollah’s Deputy Chairman of Executive Council Sheikh Nabil Qaouk had previously said that that Hezbollah forces would not allow the outskirts of Arsal to remain a haven for Takfiri terrorists.
Qaouk said on Saturday that the movement is ready as long as “there is territory occupied” on the outskirts of Arsal.
On May 27, Hezbollah fighters killed scores of al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front terrorists after spotting the militants’ hideouts by means of a drone, and launching a surprise attack in an area located between Arsal and the northeastern Lebanese village of Nahle.
The fighters of the resistance movement had previously managed to clear many areas in the Qalamoun region of terrorists.
Hezbollah fighters and the Syrian army conducted joint operations to push back terrorists from the strategic region of Qalamoun on May 4. Two days later, Hezbollah fighters captured the al-Qubaa and al-Naffar hills in Qalamoun.
