This video grab shows munitions being dropped from a drone at suspected Daesh positions in Syrias Qalamoun region near the border with Lebanon on August 21, 2017.

The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says it has usedweaponized unmanned aerial vehicles to strike the positions of the Daesh Takfiri terrorists in thestrategic and mountainous region of Qalamoun close to the border with Lebanon.

Hezbollahs media bureau announced in a statement on Monday that it had deployed the drones to hit Daesh positions, bunkers and fortifications in the area, located about 330kilometers(205 miles) north of the Syrian capital Damascus.

Video footage released by the media unit, seemingly taken from a drone, showed two types of missiles, one of them with a tail fin, cruising towards the ground and subsequent explosions as they struck the designated targets.

Earlier on Monday, Hezbollahs media bureau reported that the Lebanese resistance fighters and Syrian government forces hadwrested complete control over Shoubat al-Dowab and Shoubat Beit Shuker heights in the western outskirts of Qalamoun.

It added that Hezbollah fighters and Syrian army soldiers werein control of the strategic Qornat Shoubat Aakko district near al-Jarajirvillage in Syrias southwestern province of Rif Dimashq.

On Saturday, Hezbollah and the Syrian army launched an operation to purge Qalamoun from Daesh terrorists.

Hezbollah launched a major push on July 21 to clear both sides of Lebanon’s border with Syria ofarmed terrorists.

In August 2014, the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and Daesh terrorist groups overran Arsal, killing a number of Lebanese forces. They took 30 soldiers hostage, most of whom have been released.

Since then, Hezbollah andthe Lebanese military have been defending Lebanon on the countrys northeastern frontier against foreign-backed terrorist groups from neighboring Syria.

Hezbollah fighters have fended off several Daesh attacks inside Lebanon. They have also been providing assistance to Syrian army forces to counter the ongoing foreign-sponsored militancy.

The movement has accused Israel of supporting Takfiri terrorists operating in the Middle East.

Israel, which continues to occupy Lebanons Shebaa Farms and Syrias Golan Heights, is widely reported to be offering medical help to Takfiri terrorists injured in Syria. In December 2015, British newspaper theDaily Mailsaid Israel had saved the lives of more than 2,000 Takfiri militants since 2013.
