On Thursday, nearly 100 buses carrying 7777 HTS fighters with their families along with wounded HTS fighter left to the Syrian province of Idlib.

The exchange was carried out at the Sa’an checkpoint in northern Hama, where HTS released 5 Hezbollah fighters who were captured in previous battles: Mousa Korani, Ahmed Mezher, Mohammed Jawad Yassin, Mohammed Mahdi Shuaib, Hassan Taha.

Moreover, HTS fighters had killed Raad al-Amuri – a field commander in HTS – before they leave. HTS fighters accused Al-Amuri of being an ISIS spy.

Lebanese Security Forces also discovered an explosive belt with an HTS fighter before boarding a bus. The explosive belt was dismantled and the fighter was allowed to leave.

The Hezbollah media win in Syria reported that the fighters of Saraya Ahl al-Sham – a group of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) – and their families are still at some points in Jorud Arsal, including Al-Malahi. They will leave in the coming days according to a new agreement.

Saraya Ahl al-Sham fighters had refused to leave with HTS fighters to Idlib. They are feared that HTS would kill them in Idlib because they had withdrawn from the battle of Jorud Arsal and handed over their positions to Hezbollah. Thus, they’re expected to leave to the Euphrates Shield-held areas in the northern countryside of Aleppo.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is expected to announce in a public speech the battle to liberate Ras Baalbek in Lebanon and several areas of the western Qalamoun in Syria from ISIS. Dozens of ISIS fighters are still holed up in the area at the Syrian-Lebanese border.

    Where is the lebanese army ? Oh yes, the lebanese army is useless just like the iraqi army. Why ? Because, they rely on USA.
    Hezbollah is the real army of Lebanon. That’s the fact. If a war begins against Lebanon, only Hezbollah can defend this country.

  • Serious

    The lebanese army to USA : “Please give me a weapon, please. I will buy it.”.
    USA : “Yes, in 1 year, we will give you some trucks”. XD.

    Go with your friends not your ennemies.

    That’s why USA is trying to destroy Hezbollah. USA wants countries to be weak in order to be easily invaded if necessary.

    USA is doing what they said Hitler wanted to do : invasions, annexations, false flags, …. and even the largest genocide on human history.

    Who now own Europe ? Germany or USA ?

    ISIS and islamist groups want meant to invade Lebanon and destroy Hezbollah. Like USA can’t do it, they search for useless idiots to do the dirty job. Because USA always want to be viewed as the hero. They transfer the dirty jobs to others or made false flags. Americans like to be heroes even if they are zeroes in reality.

    American soldiers go to Vietnam to kill Vietnamese and then they go back to USA and they are “heroes”. Heroes of what ? They are murders. That’s what they are. Just like in Iraq, in Afghanistan, …

  • Serious

    That’s why Hezbollah and Iran immedialty respond since the first day of the creation of ISIS. Then, Russia comes in because Russia known that ISIS was meant to be a threat for the south of Russia especially when you know that a lot of Chechens where in ISIS.

    That are the real reasons why USA helped the creation of ISIS. Because this group will have never existed if USA didn’t invade Iraq. They knew exactly what they did. Invasion of Afghanistan to threaten Iran and Pakistan. Invasion of Iraq to encircle Iran and create a sunni group that will be used as useful idiots to kill ennemies in the region.

    Of course, USA will never told you that. They made false flags to say that ISIS is threatening the west in order to transport troops in the region to fight theirs ennemies (Hezbollah, Assad, Iran, …).

    It’s clear crystal.

  • Vidura

    All these terrorists piling into Idlib whats the SAA going to do about that ?

    • heydad

      At the current jihadiie infighting rate, they wont have to do much other than march into Idlib after they are done killing each other.

    Hezbollah will gain in the elections at this rate as the Lebanese army has become a mediocre player in this and we may just see a new party leading the country there,via democracy. They are poorly led by some of their politicians who have no concern for a strong Lebanon and only want to make money from their masters who support them like Samir Geagea, graft and corruption has always been the issue there.
