Hezbollah and Syrian army pushed further into Qalamoun Monday, killing 10 jihadi militants and wounding 20 others, Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV said.The militant casualties came after Hezbollah and the Syrian army targeted their positions on the outskirts of the Syrian village of Flita.Capturing Flita's outskirts will also allow Hezbollah and Syrian forces to link the area to the outskirts of the Syrian village of Ras al-Maara, which witnessed pitched battles with Syrian militants Friday.ISIS is excluded from this coalition, and has been engaged in battle with its jihadi rivals in the Qalamoun amid the Hezbollah and Syrian army offensive.
