Hizbullah and the Syrian Army have reportedly attacked military vehicles for al-Nusra Front militant group in the outskirts of the town of Flita in the Syrian Qalamoun region killing and wounding several, Hizbullah's al-Manar TV said on Tuesday
The TV said: “Several Nusra militants were killed and others were wounded when Hizbullah and the Syrian army fired guided missiles at posts controlled by al-Nusra in Flita.”
It added: “Terrorist groups were also targeted with heavy artillery and machine guns.”
Flita is just across the Lebanese border to Arsal, a crossing point 20 kilometers to the northwest which rebels and refugees have used regularly.
Hizbullah is a close ally of the Syrian regime and has been fighting alongside its government troops against an uprising there.
The Lebanese army has been battling the Syria-based Islamist militants who are entrenched on the porous border between Lebanon and Syria.
