The battle on Arsal's outskirts will end in victory for Hezbollah, either through a settlement with the militants or by strength of arms, the party's Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said during a televised speech Wednesday.Nasrallah highlighted the role of the Lebanese Army in ensuring the protection of Arsal and its residents, lauding the part it played as "essential".Nasrallah revealed that Hezbollah will hand over all the areas and positions it will have captured over to the Lebanese Army immediately after the battle.Nasrallah also praised the "rational and responsible" conduct of Saraya Ahl al-Sham, a Free Syrian Army group that first engaged in battles in Arsal against Hezbollah, but later withdrew from the front lines to the Syrian refugee encampments in Arsal's Wadi Hmayyed and al-Malahi."Hezbollah is offering them a settlement, the Lebanese Army is in Arsal, and Daesh wants to humiliate them before helping them," Nasrallah said.At the conclusion of his speech, Nasrallah addressed Hezbollah's fighters directly.
