THE LEVANT NEWS — BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army Tuesday pounded militant positions on the outskirts of the northeast Lebanon border town of Ras Baalbek.
The state-run National News Agency reported that the Tuesday morning shelling came from the nearby village of Marabda in the northern Bekaa Valley.
No casualties were reported.
The army frequently bombs militant posts in the area to limit their capabilities and force them to retreat.
ISIS, Al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front and other extremist groups have been entrenched on the outskirts of Lebanon’s northeastern border since August 2014.
