BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:03 P.M.) – Video footage has emerged showing the Lebanese Army targeting ISIS positions, troop movements and gathering areas in the region of Jaroud Ras Balbak close to the Syrian-Lebanese border.

The footage is linked to an ongoing offensive by the Lebanese Army – initiated about one week ago – to clear the entire Jaroud Ras Balbak region from ISIS militants.

At the same time, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) targeted Islamic State militants and their assets in the al-Zamrani and al-Hashishat hills of the western Qalamoun region where preparations by pro-government forces are ongoing to launch an offensive against ISIS from Syrian side of the border.

Here the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah will once again work together, as they recently did against the Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorist group, to liquidate the last bastion held by ISIS forces along the Syrian-Lebanese border.
