Hezbollah and its allies have crushed the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) defense in the Arsal walley at the Syrian-Lebanese border and now are Hmayyed and al-Malahy. These are the only areas that have remained under the control of HTS since the launch of the Hezbollah operation last Friday.
Hezbollah has liberated over 90% of the part of the Arsal valley that had been controlled by HTS. According to pro-government sources, some HTS militants are now negotiation terms of surrender to Hezbollah. However, there are no doubts that Hezbollah will be able to eliminate the remaining HTS members if they decide to make attempt to defend Hmayyed and al-Malahy.
ISIS-linked units that operate east of Hmayyed and al-Malahy will become the next target of the Hezbollah operation.
