Hezbollah is coordinating with the Lebanese and Syrian armies concerning the situation on the ground along Lebanon's eastern border with its biggest neighbor.The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, noted the irony that ISIS and the Nusra Front were battling each other for control of territory in Syria, but working together against Hezbollah and the Syrian army in Qalamoun.He emphasized the party's full support for the Lebanese Army. He added that according to Army Intelligence and other security bodies, the hostage soldiers and policemen are being held on Lebanese soil, which is causing the Army to proceed cautiously given the soldiers' vulnerable position. Separately, the official said that the party does not have high hopes for John Kerry's efforts to counter the ISIS threat given Washington's continued support for the "so-called moderate rebels" to confront the Syrian army, which has been fighting ISIS and terrorism since the beginning of the conflict.
