Hezbollah continued where the Lebanese Army left off on Friday, striking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions in the Ba’albak Highlands.
The powerful assault began with heavy artillery fired by the Lebanese Resistance towards ISIS’ defenses at Azwaytina and the Mosul Heights in the Ba’albak Highlands; this resulted in the destruction of several mechanisms belonging to the aforementioned terrorist group in east Lebanon.
Following the artillery strike, Hezbollah carried out a ground assault at Khirbat Beit Al-Agha and the Mosul Heights, killing several ISIS fighters en route to their advance in this mountainous area of Ras Ba’albak.
Hezbollah would also target ISIS’ positions in the Jaroud Qa’a area, where ISIS has been trying to build a strong presence at near the Al-Qusayr border-crossing.
In addition to Hezbollah’s ground assault, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) reportedly assisted the Lebanese Resistance with several airstrikes on the Syrian-Lebanese border, hitting ISIS targets at Jaroud Jarajeer, Jaroud Qarah, and Jaroud Rankous.
