The Lebanese Army has increased their attacks on the Jabhat Al-Nusra (var. Al-Nusra Front) affiliated militants in the Tripoli and Ba’albak Governorates of Lebanon after the recent influx of violence in these provinces. The militants in the districts of ‘Arsal and ‘Akkar in the latter provinces have created a state of agitation and fear in Lebanon as the presence of the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) continue to operate within the country.

Yesterday, the Lebanese Army carried out a number of military operations in the Tripoli Governorate, killing scores of militants in the ‘Akkar District. According to a military source, 5 militants from the Al-Nusra Front were killed by the Lebanese Army at the village of Bab Al-Tabbani in the ‘Akkar District. The source added that the Lebanese Army’s Central Command has concentrated more soldiers in this area to combat the large presence of militants operating within the ‘Akkar District; specifically, in the village of Bab Al-Tabbani.

Identified militants killed at Bab Al-Tabbani:

1. Shadi Hawlawi
2. ‘Usama Mansour
3. “Abu Hariri” (ID pending)
4. “Abu Jibreel” (ID Pending)
5. Ahmad Meeqati (AKA “Abu Hadi”)

In the ‘Arsal District, the Lebanese Army carried out a number of raids on militant hideouts, confiscating a large supply of weapons and ammunition. According to a Lebanese security source, 5 Syrians were arrested by the Lebanese Army during the raids in the village of Ras Al-Sirraj, including 3 suspected members of Jabhat Al-Nusra that participated in clashes with the army in August.
