The operation began after the Hezbollah resistance movement forced militant concentrations, and the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terror group, formerly known as al-Qaeda’s Syria offshoot or al-Nusra Front, out of the border area last month.
On July 29, Hezbollah commanders said the group had successfully concluded a week-long offensive against al-Nusra on the outskirts of Arsal. The operation killed about 150 terrorists.
The triumph was followed by departure from the area of another terror outfit named Saraya Ahl al-Sham, which has left Daesh in a more vulnerable position.
