Lebanese movement Hezbollah said on Monday its fight against militant groups along the eastern border with war-ravaged Syria was "nearing its end", and called on fighters to surrender.
Hezbollah announced a major push on Friday to clear both sides of Lebanon's border with Syria from "armed terrorists". The clashes are
focused on Jurud Arsal, a mountainous area around the Lebanese border town of Arsal.
"The battle against (former Al-Qaeda branch) Al-Nusra Front is nearing its end," Hezbollah's War Media outlet said on Monday.
"We call on all fighters left in Jurud Arsal to save themselves by laying down their arms and surrendering to guarantee their safety," it added.
