The Army took hilltop positions from Daesh (ISIS) on the outskirts of Arsal Sunday, pounding positions with artillery fire throughout the day, a military statement said, as it geared up for a looming offensive against the militant group.It added that Army soldiers took the positions by advancing through the hills to the north of Wadi Hmayyed, near Arsal, under heavy air and rocket support from Army planes and artillery units.The strikes were the continuation of the Army's almost daily targeting of militant positions. Late Sunday evening, Hezbollah's War Media Center reported that Hezbollah fighters launched rocket fire at Daesh positions in the border area, inflicting a number of casualties and killing a Daesh commander. Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf called for unanimous national support for Lebanese Army in its battle against Daesh.Hezbollah-affiliated Industry Minister Hussein Hajj Hasan Saturday also voiced his party's support for the Army.
