The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) has made several gains in eastern Lebanon today, as their former allies from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” continue to retreat from their military posts inside the ‘Arsal Barrens of the Beqa’a Governorate.

Moments ago, ISIS seized another two checkpoints from Jabhat Al-Nusra in the northern outskirts of Jaroud ‘Arsal, leaving the aforementioned Islamist group on the verge of retreating in order to evade the swarming Da’esh terrorists that are overwhelming their positions in eastern Lebanon.

Should ISIS enter the strategic city of ‘Arsal, the aforementioned terrorist group will be in position to strike Lebanese Army’s defensive posts near the western flank.

In addition to their assault on ‘Arsal, ISIS has launched a massive attack on Jabhat Al-Nusra’s final positions inside Jaroud Jarajeer in the Qalamoun Mountains of western Syria.

Jaroud Jarajeer is one of the last Syrian border-crossings into Lebanon that is under the control of Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies in the western slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains.

As a result of ISIS’ massive assault these last two days, the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah have been put on high alert, despite only the Jihadist fighters combating one another.
