On Friday, Lebanese Shiite militant movement Hezbollah announced a military operation against the Nusra Front. The offensive began simultaneously from two sides — from the city of Flita on the Syrian territory, and from the Lebanese territory along the eastern mountain ridge.

Earlier in the day, Hezbollah carried out a rocket strike on the supply lines of the group and managed to take control of four more areas bordering Syria in the area south of Aarsal.

The hard-to-reach mountainous region of Aarsal is considered the most tense place at the Lebanese-Syrian border. It has been used for arms smuggling and transit of new terrorist recruits to Syria. It also houses several camps for thousands of Syrian refugees.
