Fierce clashes erupt between ISIL, Nusra Front in Arsal, Ras Baalbek Mountain slopes
NNA - Fierce clashes have reportedly erupted between so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) and Nusra Front terrorists in the mountain slopes of Arsal and Ras Baalbek with both sides deploying assorted light and heavy weapon systems resulting in multiple deaths and injured among militants on both sides.
Earlier, ISIL reportedly mounted concerted attacks on Nusra positions and logistical centers physically liquidating a number of militants and field commanders in the process. Nusra Front gunmen headed by Arsal-based local field commander code-named Abu Malek at-Talleh, have responded by launching a counter-attack of their own; they brought reinforcements to recover positions lost earlier to ISIL in Zamarani, Ajram, Kornet Hachichat, Malahi and Shebib Valley. The clash between the two rival militias reportedly goes on unabated with no immediate word on damage or casualties.http://nna-leb.gov.lb/en/show-news/59106/Fierce-clashes-erupt-between-IS...
