Syrian army, Hezbollah oust rebels from Qalamoun village outskirts: Al-Manar

The Syrian army and Hezbollah have ousted Islamist militants from areas surrounding a border town that was the site of fierce fighting earlier this week, Al-Manar television reported Saturday.

Rival forces had been trading fire on the outskirts of Al-Juba, about 8 kilometers northeast of the Lebanese border town of Tfail, since Friday, one day after Hezbollah and the Syrian army captured the village.

The ousted militants withdrew to the outskirts of the Syrian village of Ras al-Maara, roughly 13 kilometers northeast of Al-Juba, Hezbollah-owned Al-Manar said.
