On Friday, Hezbollah fighters captured Sha’abat Yuness heights, Harf Wadi al-Dib, Sha’abat al-Mahbas, al-Awlah, Harf al-Hasheshat and Qurnat al-hasheshat between Jurod al-Jarajir and Jurod Asral on the Syrian-Lebanese border, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
Moreover, Syrian warplanes conducted over 20 airstrikes on ISIS positions and fortifications in Qarnat al-Shlube, Mira and Martabiah crossings, and al-Zamrani area in Jurod Qarah and al-Jarajir in Western Qalamoun.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese Army Intelligence discovered a large weapons and ammunition cache left behind by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in Wadi Humaid area in Jurod Arsal. The sized weapons and ammunition included many MILAN and Malyutka anti-tank guided missiles and dozens of M79 Osa and RGPG-29 rounds.
So far, ISIS-linked news agencies have not mentioned anything about the situation on the Syrian-Lebanese border. Furthermore, ISIS fighters have not launched any attack against Lebanese forces so far.
This may mean that the rela number of ISIS members in the border area is much less than it has been expected.
The Lebanese Army is still preparing to launch its own attack on ISIS in Ras Balbak and Jurod Al-Qa’a. Many reports, claimed that Lebanese Army soldiers are now under training by US Special Operation Forces service members.
