Hezbollah leader says ready to battle ISIS on Lebanon-Syria border

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said he was ready to launch an offensive against ISIS on the Lebanon-Syria border, days after forcing Al Qaeda’s former Syrian branch from the area.

In a televised speech broadcast on Hezbollah’s Al Manar television channel on Friday, Mr Nasrallah also demanded news within days about the fate of nine Lebanese soldiers kidnapped by ISIS in 2014.

Mr Nasrallah said “eliminating” ISIS from the mountainous area known as Jurud along the Lebanon-Syria border “is in the interests of both Lebanon and Syria”.
