Five Hezbollah captives have been released as part of a deal with Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, the exchange between the two groups began Thursday in the province of Hama.The five fighters were released in stages.Jabhat Fatah al-Sham fighters abandoned their positions and were transported from Lebanon to Syria Wednesday, as part of a cease-fire agreement that came into force last Thursday. The agreement ended Hezbollah's week-long offensive against the militants in the outskirts of Arsal.Ibrahim also said that the Lebanese Army can fight against Daesh by itself.Hezbollah's operation room announced in a statement published by WMC that the outskirts of Arsal and Syria's Flita, in western Qalamoun, had been liberated from Jabhat Fatah al-Sham militants.One of the most important militant positions taken over by Hezbollah fighters was Hosn Al-Kherba, which looks out over Al-Malabi and the Al-Ajram Valley, WMC reported.Another group of Hezbollah fighters advanced towards the remaining Jabhat Fatah al-Sham positions, having dismantled a number of explosives, according to WMC.
