Clashes raged between Hezbollah and Nusra Front gunmen along the northeastern border Thursday, as the party's fighters carried on with efforts to eliminate remaining pockets of Syrian rebels in the area.Earlier this week, seven Hezbollah fighters and 32 Syrian rebels died in clashes in the area.Earlier this year, Syrian troops backed by Hezbollah drove rebels out of the Syrian region of Qalamoun and the party is now trying to tighten its noose on Nusra Front fighters who fled to the border with Lebanon during the operation.According to Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV, the Syrian army said it had its guns trained on two illegal border crossings that link Arsal to the Syrian village of Flita.
