Hezbollah's military offensive on the outskirts of the northeastern town of Arsal has been successfully concluded, party commanders told reporters Saturday during a media tour of areas captured from militants in the mountains bordering Syria.Hezbollah on Friday, July 21, launched a week-long assault on positions held by Jabhat Fatah al-Sham – the militant group formerly known as the Nusra Front – on the outskirts of both Arsal and the adjacent town of Flita in Syria.In 2013 and 2014, a series of deadly car bomb attacks rocked Lebanon, chiefly in areas where Hezbollah enjoys popular support, before security agencies and the Army tightened their security measures.The commander also reportedly said that Hezbollah fighters managed to infiltrate behind enemy frontiers and attack militants from unexpected positions.
