3 Killed in Landmine Explosion in Arsal Outskirts
Three people were killed Thursday in a landmine explosion in the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal, state-run National News Agency reported.
“Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Hujeiri, his son and Youssef Audeh were killed when their car hit a landmine in the al-Kheshen area in Arsal's outskirts,” NNA said.
“The landmine was left over by the terrorists,” the agency added, referring to the jihadist al-Nusra Front and Syrian rebel groups.
Jihadists and rebels had set up positions in the area for several years before being ousted in 2017 following a Hizbullah offensive.
