Landmine Kills 1, Wounds 2 in Arsal's Outskirts


A landmine left behind by jihadist groups on Tuesday killed a Lebanese citizen and wounded two others in the outskirts of the eastern border town of Arsal.

The National News Agency said Burkan al-Hujeiri was killed and two others from the al-Hujeiri family were wounded when the landmine went off on an agricultural route in the al-Ajram area in the town's outskirts.

They were transferred to the Dar al-Rahma Hospital in Arsal.

Jihadists from the Islamic State and al-Nusra Front groups had remained entrenched in the town's mountainous outskirts for several years before being ousted by separate Lebanese Army and Hizbullah offensives.
