Hezbollah has announced a general mobilization within its ranks in preparation for a decisive battle against Islamist militants in Syria's Qalamoun mountains expected to break out between April 1 and April 15, security sources said.According to sources familiar with the situation on the eastern border with Syria, Hezbollah has divided the Qalamoun region into two axes as part of its readiness for the battles with ISIS and Nusra Front gunmen holed up in caves in rugged mountainous areas near the border with Lebanon.According to the sources, Hezbollah has deployed rocket launchers in the town of Younin and on the outskirts of the villages of Janta and Al-Shaara near the border with Syria as well as in the towns of Labweh, Al-Ain, Al-Bazaliyeh and Nabi Othman in the northern Bekaa region.
