At least five al-Nusra militants lost their lives after Lebanese troops repelled an offensive by the Takfiri group in the Northeastern border town of Arsal, Al-Alam News Network reports.

The Lebanese army issued a statement on Wednesday, saying that its forces claimed the lives of five al-Nusra terrorists after the Takfiri group attempted to infiltrate into Arsal. 

The statement added that the terrorists were “ambushed” as they tried to enter Arsal, situated 124 kilometers (77 miles) Northeast of the capital, Beirut, through Wadi Ata.

On May 20, the Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance fighters started their last round of military operations to purge Al-Qalamoun region in Damascus countryside of Takfiri terrorists.
