Grouping «Hezbollah» reports significant progress in fighting the jihadists of the «Islamic state» and «Jabhat Fatah al-sham» in the heart of the city Arsaliyev on the North-East of Lebanon.
Allegedly Shiite militants control about 64% of the area. For the last three days 46 militants «Jabhat Fatah al-sham» were killed in the district Arsaliyev and 23 in the mountainous region Kalamun on the Syrian side of the border.
The Lebanese army command announced that the former Deputy mayor of Arsaliyev Ahmad al-Flite, sent as an envoy to jihadistan «Jabhat Fatah al-sham», were killed by them.
The attack on the positions of jihadists is conducted from both sides of the border, while the Syrian army into Lebanese territory comes. As noted, the operation is not limited in time and will continue to serve its purpose.
In the area there are numerous camps for Syrian refugees. Local activists say that army and Shiite fighters carry out sweeps in them, avoiding to fight with ISIS and «Jabhat Fatah al-sham»
