Several terrorists were killed in an Islamic Resistance’s ambush in Syria’s Qalamoun region along the border with Lebanon.
According to the information, “All members of a group of al-Nusra takfiri [militants] were killed in an ambush by the Resistance between the Syrian outskirts of the Lebanese towns of Arsal and Nahleh.”
In addition, al-Qaeda-affiliate al-Nusra Front field commander was killed in the ambush and a military vehicle was destroyed.
Al-Manar TV channel reported that the group belonged to Nusra’s Ghuraba Brigade.
In the past weeks, the Islamic Resistance announced that it has secured around a third of the Qalamoun region, on both the Lebanese and Syrian sides of the porous border.
The area of roughly 1,000 square kilometers is a landscape of imposing hillsides riddled with caves, and open valleys full of scrub and wildflowers.
