Lebanon: 9 dead as Lebanese army clashes with terrorists


Lebanese army troops clashed with terrorists in the country’s northeast near the Syrian border today, leaving one soldier and eight gunmen dead, a security official said.

Lebanon has been the scene of frequent violence, including deadly bombings and fighting between terrorists and the army, since war erupted in neighbouring Syria in 2011.

Clashes broke out “between terrorists and the Lebanese army” at around 3:00 am (0100 GMT) today near the flashpoint town of Ras Baalbek, the official, who did not want to be named, told AFP.

It was unclear which group the terrorists were fighting for.

The area was now “calm” and eight wounded soldiers were receiving treatment in nearby hospitals, the official said.
