THE DAILYSTAR: Army kills three ISIS militants in pre-emptive border raid

—The Lebanese Army said it killed three ISIS militants and wounded four others in a dawn raid Tuesday on a strategic hill near the border with Syria, in the military’s latest pre-emptive attack against jihadis threatening to destabilize Lebanon. “A Lebanese Army force carried out at dawn today [Tuesday] a lightning and qualitative raid on terrorist groups on the Mkhairimeh hilltop in the highland of the town of Ras Baalbek, killing three terrorists and wounding four after clashing with them using all types of weapons,” the Army said in a statement.

According to the statement, the raid was staged after the military command had received information that “terrorist groups” were preparing logistics for combat operations on the hilltop, which overlooks Wadi Rafeq, where jihadis in the past have attempted to infiltrate Lebanon.
