Hezbollah fighters captured more territory in Syria's Qalamoun mountains Monday, three weeks into an offensive to oust jihadis from the rugged border region, Al-Manar said.The Syrian army and Hezbollah launched the battle for Qalamoun earlier this month, capturing dozens of militant bases and driving the jihadis north toward the outskirts of Lebanon's Arsal.Three Hezbollah fighters were killed fighting in Qalamoun last week, bringing the party's death toll since the launch of the Qalamoun offensive to at least 16, according to a security source.
