Published: Updated:

Four Lebanese army members and five ISIS members were killed in clashes in the areas surrounding Ras Baalbek along the Lebanese-Syrian border early Wednesday.

Sources reported that the Lebanese army began to advance by road from the surrounding areas, after heavy artillery bombardment, which paved the way for the recapturing and restoring of three hills under the control of ISIS.

The military sources reported that the Lebanese army sent additional reinforcements to the area, after intensified artillery shelling and missiles, with an inspection tour conducted by Army Commander Joseph Aoun military units.
