An exchange deal between Hizbullah and the Syrian al-Qaida affiliate al-Nusra Front was finalized overnight on Wednesday with the release of three Hizbullah fighters in return for three Syrian Nusra prisoners, media reports said.
The reports said the swap took place in the Wadi Hmayyed area in Arsal's outskirts.
Three Nusra prisoners from Roumieh prison were swapped for Hizbullah captives.
General Security chief Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim, who is playing a key role in the negotiations, assured that all three Hizbullah fighters are in good health.
The three Hizbullah captives were kidnapped when they lost their way during the ceasefire between Hizbullah and Nusra during the battles in Arsal's outskirts.
They were identified as Hamad Harb, Shadi Zahim and Hussam Fakih.
