Hizbullah Destroys Nusra Military Vehicle in Arsal Outskirts

Hizbullah fighters have reportedly destroyed a bulldozer of the al-Qaida linked al-Nusra Front in the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal, the party's media said on twitter.

The military vehicle was carrying out reinforcements in the area of Wadi al-Khayl when the fighters destroyed it.

Militants from Nusra and the Islamic State group are entrenched in rugged mountains along the Lebanese-Syrian border and the Lebanese army regularly shells their positions while Hizbullah and the Syrian army have engaged in clashes with them on the Syrian side of the border.

The two groups overran the town of Arsal in 2014 and engaged in deadly battles with the Lebanese army for several days.

The retreating militants abducted around 35 troops and policemen of whom four have been executed and nine remain in captivity.
