Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
BEIRUT – The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah said on Wednesday that the group was close to defeating Nusra Front militants in the battle along the Syrian-Lebanese border.
“We are in the face of a very big military victory,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech. The militants have “effectively lost” most of the land they held in the barren, mountainous border region of Jroud Arsal, he added.
As soon as the fighting ends, the Shiite Iranian-backed Hezbollah would be ready to hand over territory it has captured if the Lebanese army requests it, he said.
Hezbollah has made rapid advances since it launched an offensive with the Syrian army on Friday to drive Sunni militants from their last foothold along the frontier.
BEIRUT – A cease-fire deal has been reached that will see jihadist fighters withdraw from the Syria-Lebanon border, a top Lebanese official said Thursday after a weeklong operation there by the Hezbollah movement.
The powerful Shiite militant group began the assault on fighters from al-Qaida’s former Syrian affiliate, previously known as the Nusra Front, in the Jurud Arsal border region last week.
Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Wednesday his fighters had surrounding remaining militants in a small pocket of territory and negotiations were under way for their withdrawal.
