The liberation of the Lebanese town of Arsal will help the Hezbollah resistance movement to secure Lebanon from the infiltration of Takfiri terrorist groups, says an academic.

The achievement is very important to “save Lebanon from any political or any security instability,” Jamal Wakim told Press TV on Tuesday.

“The achievement of the Lebanese resistance on the border between Lebanon and Syria is very important especially that it clears a very strategic region from the al-Nusra terrorist group,” the professor at the Lebanese International University said.

On Friday, Hezbollah fighters, backed by Syrian warplanes, managed to liberate several border areas between the two countries from the clutches of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, in an ongoing joint counter-terrorism operation.
