The TV station of Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group says they have repelled an attack by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria group fighters in an area on the Lebanon-Syria border.

Al-Manar TV says Tuesday’s attack left several ISIS fighters dead or wounded and three vehicles, including a bulldozer, destroyed.

Hezbollah has been on the offensive in Syria’s Qalamoun mountains for weeks and has captured territory from al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, the Nusra Front.

Al-Manar said the ISIS attack targeted several Hezbollah positions outside the Lebanese border village of Ras Baalbek.
