BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – For the first time since 2011, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah are in control of the entire Syrian-Lebanese border.

The Syrian Arab Army and Hezbollah were able to make this declaration after they took control of the Durrat Border-Crossing into Lebanon’s ‘Arsal Municipality.

The Durrat Border-Crossing was the last point under jihadist control before the Madaya-Zabadani deal; once this agreement commenced, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham agreed to withdraw from the area.

While the jihadists do manage to smuggle weapons and fighters from Lebanon by traveling through the Qalamoun Mountains, the Syrian Arab Army and Hezbollah have ensured that they will have no easy way of doing so in the near future.
