Sources close to ER have provided details regarding Hezbollah’s quiet offensive on the border of Lebanon, including the recent capture of a strategic hill in the Qalamoun Mountains of western Syria.

On Saturday morning, Hezbollah fighters – in coordination with the National Defensive Forces (NDF) – led an attack on a Jabhat Al-Nusra stronghold located north of the strategic village of Faleeta, killing a confirmed 23 enemy combatants, while capturing the imperative hill of Tal Al-Hinkel in the process.

Hezbollah also participated in a number clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) on the border of Lebanon and as a result, the resistance was able to obstruct the entry of a number of insurgents into the Lebanese province of Ba’albak.

As the battle for the border of Lebanon heats up, Hezbollah has positioned itself for a large-scale offensive at the integral border-city Al-Zabadani in the Western Mountains – the offensive is expected to begin in the coming days; however, no set date was given.
