The Lebanese Army seized Friday at dawn positions used by jihadi militants to infiltrate Lebanon's northeastern border, scoring a new success in its confrontation with Islamist fighters. Meanwhile, the Syrian army, backed by Hezbollah fighters, drove Syrian rebels Friday out of several hills in Syria's Zabadani region, a security source told The Daily Star. The Army established a military presence in the area and has linked the new positions to other Army posts stationed along the border.The source also described the hills seized by the Army Friday as "very important".Earlier this week, the Lebanese Army detained two "terrorists," including an ISIS suspect accused of beheading one of the soldiers.
