At least 50 jihadists from the Islamic State and Al-Nusra Front were killed overnight by Syrian troops backed by Lebanese Hezbollah fighters near the Lebanese border, a monitor said Saturday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the jihadists clashed throughout Friday night and into Saturday morning with the regime troops and allied forces in the Qalamun region by the Lebanese border.
