Lebanese military sets up operation against IS


(MENAFN) The Lebanese army launched an offensive against an IS enclave on the northeast border with Syria, as Hezbollah and the Syrian army proclaimed an assault from the Syrian side of the border.

In addition, the army was aiming IS positions near the town of Ras Baalbek with rockets, artillery and helicopters, while the area is the last part of the Lebanese-Syrian frontier.

Meanwhile, the operation by the Syrian army and Hezbollah, an Iran-backed Lebanese group was aiming IS militants in the western Qalamoun region of Syria.

In July, Hezbollah forced Nusra Front militants and Syrian rebels to leave nearby border strongholds in a mutual operation with the Syrian army.
