Arsal's officials have voiced their opposition to the involvement of Hezbollah in battles in or around the town, saying the only party allowed to defend the area is the Lebanese Army."Arsal is a red line, and no one has the right of to threaten to invade it, shell it, or assault on it and its people," it added, referring to Hezbollah chief Hasan Nasrallah's recent comments.In a speech he gave Monday, Nasrallah warned that if the Lebanese Army does not liberate Arsal's outskirts from Nusra Front and ISIS militants, his group would take matters into its own hands.
