DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3: 00 P.M.) – The Lebanese Hezbollah group blitzed jihadists’ positions in West Qalamoun in a bid to secure the bordering area from potential threats.

Video footage published by the group’s media wing showed the highly-trained Hezbollah fighters targeting fortifications and barricades for the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham – the Syrian al-Qaeda offshoot – in Juroud Fletah with heavy artillery and tanks.

Several jihadi rebels have been reported dead in the assault.

The Lebanese group has turned their attention to Juroud Fletah, aiming at cleansing the bordering area from jihadi militants and thus fully securing the Lebanon-Syria borders.

Earlier this week, Hezbollah handed over all its border outposts to the Lebanese Army after the group’s leader announced the completion of the military operation along the Syrian-Lebanese borders in Zabadani.

  1. So Isis and Nusra must be working for the United States, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, or the pro-zionists. Lebanon, Palestine, Libya, Iran, Syria, and Russia are the anti-zionists. The anti-zionists are fighting the Devil and his army.

    • Actually, you’re wrong!
      Russia and Israel have really great relations, it’s Israel that created Hezbollah and they are Iran’s secret ally, hey how can their F-4 Phantom still be flying if not on Israeli dismantled ones used for spare parts! Get some infos on arms trafficking from Israel to Iran, you’ll be puzzled! Without Israel’s help, Saddam would have taken the country! Hezbo’s is nothing else than Israel’s sparing partner 😆
      BTW, both Iran and Israel are the perfect boogey-men for USA to secure gigantic arms trades with Gulf nations and so have their petrodollars back home while UK is doing the same as they always did : playing dirty in a divide’n’conquer pattern to avoid their island to sink.
      “USA has no friends, only interests”-Charles de Gaulle.

      Actually, Putin even supported the idea of Israel’s AF to launch a few days of massive air campaign against IS. The idea was launched by their air-marshall but, strangely, Obama signed a $33.8bln check to Israel in military help then Bibi pointed that if they launched such a campaign, it’d became a magnet for all radicalised Muslims on Earth to rush in the region to fight Israel. LMAO! Israel wouldn’t have a problem to do about 20-30k airstrikes per day, they could even spray radioactive matters in order to create interdiction zones and if not enough, they could even consider to get nuclear wastes from mostly all countries with nuke plants to do so, all would be so happy to get rid from such wastes!

      Actually, Jesus was a Jew so don’t hope Christians to be anti-Zionists, actually, Christianity is Jewishism for ‘goys’ although it’s also mixed with Hinduism/Buddhism philosophy, BTW, Hinduist consider Jesus as the reincarnation of Lord Krishna and the + 20y gap between his childhood and the moment when he began his preach is interesting as there are serious clues he spent the most of it in India and well, as Lord Krishna, he was born from a Virgin and as the Buddha, he used to walk on water. But now, if you refer to Quran 5.20-21, 17.104 : Allah is a Zionist!!!!

      There is NO Palestine and never ever in history there was a state named like this and there weren’t any Palestinian people. It’s the romanisation of the Hebrew word ‘Peleshet’ meaning “Invaders” that was used for those westerners call ‘Philistines’ who were called ‘people from the sea’ by Egyptians, they used to came mostly from Crete or Greece and took some cities along Israel’s and Lebanon’s littoral during antiquity. After the Jews’ revolt, Roman invaders renamad Israel “Palestina” to insult the Jews. The PR campaign about the so-called Palestinian people began after the 1967 6 Days War defeat and is a total forgery invented by KGB. Actually, as are Hamas, al-Qaeda, AKP, Sheebabs, Talebans, etc etc, PLO is nothing else than ANOTHER Muslim Brotherhood offshoot but this one was made secular to gain Soviet’s help! Arafat entered the MB in 1948 and the MB leader for Mandatory Palestine was nobody else than the infamous Amin al-Husseini, grand mufti of Jerusalem then Waffen SS general and Arafat’s uncle! Amin ordered the murder of king Abdullah-I of Jordan too.
      Qatar’s emir and Erdogan are MB. Morsi, which Mossad greatly helped to overthrow is MB, so is Huma Abedin, the well known HRC main aide. MB tried to assassinate Nasser, succeeded with Sadat and both OBL and al-Zawahiri bean their ‘careers’ in the MB.
      So we have MB, al-Qaeda as an offshoot and IS is an AQ split-off from the Iraqi branch that merged with the Saddamists.
      Most of the roaches in Syria have been recruited by MB or AQ and AQ was mostly created by the Saudis but, as for MB, they began to go against the House of Saoud so now, both are banned in KSA.
      Did I forot to say that the Arab translation of ‘Mein Kampf’ was translated and published by MB? Butthey forgot to put in what Adolf wrote about Arabs : had he won WW2, Arabs would have ended EXACTLY like the Jews in gas chambers! Actually, all non-blond with blue/green eyes people would have been eradicated by Adolf.
      Now, if you think Israel has interest into backing nazislamism, you’re a total fool! Let me tell you that you may find Jaffa oranges in Tehran while there are Iranian pistachios for sale in Tel-Aviv! Israeli are world leaders in irrigation techniques. Guess who built ultra-modern irrigation systems in Iran?

      Your manichean view is totally flawed by lack of historical knowledge! 1st, there are NO good guys in this sad story and it’s not about good vs. evil, just about making BIG money on both energy and weapons markets, using extremists as expandable cannon-fodder.
      Moreover, was there a will by Russia to REALLY exterminate Qaeda and IS in Syria, they could simply launch a serious aerial campaign and devastate ’em so much in a week time that SAA could advance just behind the bombings and just’d had to cleanse the area from survivors. They’re FAR to be the white knight you think they are, actually, they spend about $3M a day in Syria and didn’t even asked Assad to participate the fees and for a good reason : during the first 9 months of 2016, Rosoboronexport registered a $56.8bln surge in orders for Russian military gear! For a mere $275M investment, Syria is really an OK-business for Russia. A nice proving ground as they also tested 162 new types of weapons. Recently, USA registered about a $100bln contract in arms sales to Saudi-Arabia only and I’m not talking about the sales of F-15 to Qatar and F-16 and Super-Hornets to other Gulf countries, etc etc, thus, they invest more but US manpower and gear are more expensive than Russian too : the invest is $12M/day. Kosovo’s No Drive Zone cost was $660M/day shared by all NATO countries, it gives an idea of the real US involvement 😉
      In other terms, after the huge deficit under Bush admin, then the launch of shale-gas fracking that allowed USA to pull out from the Iraqi quagmire, US is much less involved now and making benefits and… Russia too!

      • >Russia and Israel have really great relations
        “Good” relations, not “really great”. That’s because of an incredible amount of patience on Putin’s part. Last Nethanyau’s visit to Moscow didn’t go well at all. Besides, Russia has good relations with Turkey, too. Yet, stangely, Erdogan’s agenda is going nowhere. as Nethanyau’s one
        >it’s Israel that created Hezbollah
        >[Israel is] Iran’s secret ally
        IKR. And, Gen. Custer was Sitting Bull’s best friend
        >how can their F-4 Phantom still be flying
        Same reson why Cuba’s big US cars from the 50s are still wandering the island. Same reason U.S. M-113’s are in Hezbollah’s arsenal. Just rise excellent mechanics and buy + adapt spares. Westerners use to phase out thousands of perfectly working machinery, and those tend to “percolate” in alternative markets – intact or dismantled in spares.
        >Without Israel’s help, Saddam would have taken the country
        Rome’s Colosseum is for sale. Cheap. Wanna buy?

      • Money and arms deals didn’t help the Zionist scum in bint jbeil did it…. if only there were such brave jews as you In their military maybe they would have achieved least a single military objective
