Militants have been driven out of Syria's strategic Qalamoun region near the undemarcated border with Lebanon, Hezbollah's deputy leader Sheikh Naim Qassem said Friday.Militants waged a five-day battle with the Lebanese Army in the northeastern border town of Arsal in August, and have since launched several attacks on Army targets and Hezbollah checkpoints. On Sunday Nusra launched a brazen attack on Hezbollah positions on the outskirts of the eastern Lebanese towns of Brital and Nahleh, killing at least eight fighters."Thank God we went to fight in Syria at the right time, and we were in the place we should be to prevent this grave danger".In his fiery speech, Qassem also condemned any form of assault on the Lebanese Army, urging all parties to pledge full support to the military.
