Hezbollah carried out a powerful assault against the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Al-Qaeda group) on Tuesday, targeting the aforementioned terrorist group’s positions along the Syria-Lebanon border. According to a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) source in Damascus City, Hezbollah – backed by the Syrian Arab Army’s 43rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – infiltrated Jabhat Al-Nusra’s defenses at Serghaya village after a violent battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra on Tuesday evening.
Currently, Hezbollah and the Syrian Army are striking Jabhat Al-Nusra’s positions inside of Serghaya, while the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) targets the terrorist groups at the Jaroud Jarajeer and Jaroud Qarah border-crossings. Serghaya is located just north of Al-Zabadani and was originally part of the 4 month long ceasefire deal that was brokered by Turkey and Iran in August. However, Jabhat Al-Nusra and their rebel allies have taken advantage of the ceasefire by swelling their numbers along the Syria-Lebanon border.
