(Worthy News)-- Hezbollah fighters captured two hilltops from al-Qaida's Syria-wing Nusra Front in areas close to the Lebanese border and have killed dozens of enemy combatants, Hezbollah-run al-Manar television reported Monday.
It said the group had captured Quba'a and Naqar in Syria's southwestern Quinetra province, which lies close to Lebanon and Israel.
Hezbollah has backed President Bashar Assad in Syria's civil war. The group’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has vowed to clear the border area of Sunni groups that have carried out attacks on Lebanese soil. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Hezbollah-seizes-hilltops-from-al-Qaida-in-Syrian-province-bordering-Israel-404034" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
