The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah are now in full control of the entire Syrian-Lebanese border for the first time since 2011.

The Syrian Arab Army and Hezbollah declared their new achievement after they took control of the Durrat Border-Crossing into Lebanon’s ‘Arsal Municipality.

The Durrat Border-Crossing was the last point under Daesh control before the Madaya-Zabadani deal; once this agreement initiated, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham agreed to withdraw from the region.

By traveling through the Qalamoun Mountains, the Daesh fighters were capable of smuggling weapons and fighters from Lebanon. With the new advancement, the SAA and Hezbollah assured that they secured the border and will no longer allow any upcoming smuggling operations.
