The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) and their former allies from Jabhat Al-Nusra clashed near the Syrian border on Tuesday, resulting in a flurry of skirmishes that accumulated a high death toll for both terrorist groups.

 

According to local reports, ISIS carried out an attack against Jabhat Al-Nusra near the ‘Arsal Barrens on Tuesday; this prompted the aforementioned jihadist group to mount a counter-assault in order to beat back their former allies.

 

While the terrorists were exchanging blows in the ‘Arsal Barrens, the Lebanese Army began to indiscriminately fire rockets and artillery shells at both forces.

 

In addition to the Lebanese Army’s shelling, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) reportedly carried out a few airstrikes along the Lebanese-Syrian border, forcing the terrorist groups to disperse after suffering numerous casualties.
