Hezbollah kills “Nusra” fighter in northeast Lebanon

attacked a gathering of Nusra Front militants on Lebanon’s northeastern border Thursday, the party’s Al-Manar television and other media said, killing one and wounding three others.

The attack occured in the area of Wadi al-Kheil on the outskirts of Arsal, Al-Manar said in a newsflash.

No other details of the attack were made available.

Hezbollah controls a number of strategic hilltops on the outskirts of Arsal in the Qalamoun mountains along the Syrian border captured during an offensive last year.

The hilltops overlook areas occupied by Nusra and ISIS fighters and provide vantage points for Hezbollah to launch attacks.

Many of the attacks are recorded and played during Al-Manar’s evening broadcast showing Hezbollah fighters firing guided rockets at militant targets.
