Hezbollah drones for the first time bombed the headquarters of the terrorist al-Nusra Front at Lebanon’s border with Syria, killing and wounding tens of the terrorists.
During the operations Hezbollah pounded positions of the radical Syrian rebels on the outskirts of the Northeastern town of Arsal using drones, heavy fire and cannons.
At least 23 terrorists were killed and tens of others were injured, while ground troops arrested several terrorists in another part of the operations.
Also the Hezbollah forces repelled an attack by the terrorists in Ra’s al-Ma’rah region and Nahlah heights.
This was the first time ever that the Hezbollah resistance group used drone to bomb the terrorists. The resistance group formerly used drones for reconnaissance missions.
The attacks also killed Abu Laith al-Shami, a Lebanese national and ringleader of one of the terrorist groups.
The operations were conducted after the al-Nusra Front claimed responsibility late Saturday for an attack that targeted a Hezbollah checkpoint in Northeast Lebanon. The terrorist group said the attack destroyed a 57 millimeter cannon but did not elaborate.
At least three were killed in a suicide bombing which targeted a Hezbollah checkpoint in East Lebanon Saturday evening, security sources said.
But Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV said the blast left no casualties.
The bombing, which occurred in the village of Khreibeh near the border with Syria, came one day after the killing of three Army soldiers in the Bekaa Valley.
