The Syrian Army troops and the Lebanese Hezbollah combatants launched a joint operation from two directions to hit the terrorist groups’ positions in Arsal and Qalamoun Heights at Syria-Lebanon border regions.

(FNA) ~ Hezbollah’s mortar and missile units pounded the gatherings and command centers of Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in Zohr al-Hawa, al-Qanzah, Eagle heights, Wadi (desert) al-Khayl and Sha’aba al-Nahla region in Arsal heights.

In the meantime, the missile units of the Syrian army and Hezbollah, deployed in Western Qalamoun and Fliteh Heights opened heavy fire at terrorists’ positions in al-Zalil heights, Tal (hill) al-Karah and Tal al-Alam.

Also, the army and its allies, backed up by heavy airstrikes of the Syrian air force, stormed the large hilltop of Tal Burkan near the Faliteh Barrens, forcing militants of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) to concede the hilltop to Damascus forces.

The army men managed further to advance against terrorists and took control of several positions in Tal (hill) Bourkan.

The fresh phase of Western Qalamoun operation at Syria-Lebanon border is considered as the last phase of the joint anti-terrorism operation in the region.

Security sources reported on Thursday that the Lebanese and Syrian armies were on alert to start parallel operations against the ISIL and al-Nusra Front terrorist groups in the bordering heights of Arsal region.

The sources said that the Lebanese army was prepared to start parallel military operations in Arsal region with Syria and closed off all routes to the region.

Also, the Syrian army sent a large number of military forces and equipment to Western Qalamoun near the border with Lebanon.

A military source noted that the Syrian fighter jets were targeting the terrorists’ positions in an introduction to the operations, and added that the Syrian soldiers and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group would start military operations in Syria in the first phase.

Meantime, he added that the Lebanese army soldiers would also safeguard the Eastern borders to prevent the Takfiri terrorists from crossing into the country.

The Syrian air force in the past few days pounded the terrorists’ positions in Faliteh heights and Wadi al-Khayl region in Arsal region.
