BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 P.M.) – Hezbollah found a video of an Islamic State (ISIL) terrorist talking about attacking two Christian areas in eastern Lebanon prior to its liberation two weeks ago.
Released by Al-Mayadeen News on Friday, Hezbollah found this video inside the Islamic State’s headquarters along the Syrian-Lebanese border.
Based on the footage, the Islamic State was going to attack the predominately Christian Ras Ba’albak and Al-Qa’a areas of the Beqa’a Governorate.
Hezbollah’s successful offensive along the Syrian-Lebanese border foiled the Islamic State’s plot and saved Al-Qa’a and Ras Ba’albak.
Al-Qa’a has been targeted by the Islamic State before and its proximity to the once occupied Ras Ba’albak area made it susceptible to a terrorist attack.
