Hezbollah, Lebanon Recapture Another Town on Syrian Border

Hezbollah fighters stand on their army vehicle at the site where clashes erupted between Hezbollah and al-Qaida-linked fighters in Wadi al-Kheil or al-Kheil Valley in the Lebanon-Syria border, Saturday, July 29, 2017. A cease-fire went into effect between the militant Hezbollah group and al-Qaida-linked fighters on Thursday morning as negotiations were underway to reach a deal that would eventually lead to the evacuation of Syrian fighters to the northwestern rebel-held province of Idlib.

The Lebanese army takes over the town of Arsal on the Syrian-Lebanese border after Hezbollah soldiers recapture the area from the radical al-Nusra group.

After the town was taken back over by soldiers, Lebanese allies took journalists on a tour through the area showing them supply stockpiles and military equipment left behind by Islamic militants.

Army commanders say Russia was key in the fight to take the city back, but they need the U.S. to ultimately push the fight over the edge.

This victory follows a series of wins for Lebanon as it continues to get rid of Islamic extremists along their border with Syria.

    Hezbollah, Lebanon Capture An Arabic Version of Boys Town On Syrian Border, One Boy Said “They Fight Like ISIS, Puttiing On Dresses and Perfume and Ask Who Wants To Go Out On A Date, Then You Find It’s Not A Steak Dinner But A Stake Between Their Legs, At Least When They Are Done They Kiss You Good Night.”

    This is something I never understood. Hezbollah terrorists? Their aim has been to protect Lebanon from getting invaded, whether by the Syrians, the Israelis, the Palestinians. Anyone know of an instance when the Hezbollah went across the borders to conquer anyone? Palestians ran to Lebanon running away from the Israelis, Israelis chased them into Lebanon, Hezbollah at first helped Palestinians and realized their mistake. Palestinian terrorists were kicked out, Israelis didn’t go in any more, Hezbollah stopped shooting missiles across the border. End of story.

      Easy to understand. It is the Zionist, ‘Israel First’ lobby. The price of beating Hezbollah is too high for Israel so the want some stupid Americans to do it for them. Their problem is that, like Iran, Hezbollah is an educated, modern army dedicated to defending their country.

    They sure love killing each other for Allah.

      It’s because they don’t drink and spend all night drinking coffee and arguing.

        It is because they follow the ideology of death and destruction. Show me a Muslim who wouldn’t die for Allah and I’ll show you a moderate Muslim.
