Hezbollah Says It Repelled ISIS Attack on Lebanon-Syria Border

Tuesday, 09 Jun 2015 06:42 AM

Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group said through its TV station that its fighters have repelled an attack by the Islamic State (ISIS) group in an area on the Lebanon-Syria border.

Al-Manar TV says Tuesday's attack left several ISIS fighters dead or wounded and three vehicles, including a bulldozer, destroyed.

Hezbollah has been on the offensive in Syria's Qalamoun mountains for weeks and has captured territory from al-Qaida's branch in Syria, the Nusra Front.

Al-Manar said the ISIS attack targeted several Hezbollah positions outside the Lebanese border village of Ras Baalbek.

Hezbollah is deeply involved in Syria's civil war, fighting alongside President Bashar al-Assad's forces
