BEIRUT: ISIS will soon appoint fugitive Salafi Sheikh Ahmad Assir as the emir of Lebanon, local daily Al-Joumhouria said Wednesday, citing security sources.

It quoted the sources as saying that ISIS had begun planning not just for security, but also military operations in Lebanon.

They said the Islamist rebel group that controls swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria was aiming to further its reach into Lebanon. In order to achieve this geographical expansion ISIS has requested support from northern Syria, the sources added.
