BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – Hezbollah has secured a major advance against terrorists of the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) jihadist group in the Arsal, western Qalamoun border region between Syria and Lebanon.

The advance was achieved today with Hezbollah forces overrunning the jihadist group’s positions in the canyon areas of Wadi Ma’rouf, Wadi Kuhail, Wadi Za’rour, Wadi al-Daqayek and Wadi al-Dam.

Not long after this advance was confirmed, Hezbollah’s regional operations room released a statement saying the battle against HTS was almost over and that they called on the terrorist group’s fighters to surrender themselves and save their own lives.

The statement emphasized that Hezbollah would guarantee the safety of surrendered HTS fighters and would grant them evacuation to Idlib Governorate in northern Syria if the militants so chose.

As of the present time, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah are all engaged in a bilateral, multi-factional operation against HTS aimed at clearing the final terrorist-occupied stretch of border between Syria and Lebanon.
