BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 P.M.) – Hezbollah’s offensive in the ‘Arsal Barrens is nearing its end after more than four days of battle in Lebanon’s Beqa’a Governorate.

According to a Lebanese source, Hezbollah is on the verge of capturing Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s last two positions in the ‘Arsal Barrens, while the Lebanese military heavily shells the area.

With more than 90 percent of the ‘Arsal Barrens under their control, Hezbollah and their allies are poised to expel the remaining Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham militants from the area.

The ‘Arsal offensive began last week, when Hezbollah, alongside the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), launched a powerful assault on the Falita Barrens in western Damascus; this area was cleared within 48 hours.

Once the Falita Barrens were cleared of HTS militants, Hezbollah turned their attention to the Beqa’a Governorate, where they launched a massive assault on the ‘Arsal Barrens.
