Fresh fighting between Lebanese soldiers and militants has claimed the lives of at least three people in the northern part of the country.

The clashes broke out in the city of Tripoli early Saturday, two days after government troops raided an apartment in the Dinniyeh region to capture a defected soldier.

The army arrested Ahmad Miqati, one of the most senior commanders of the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group in Lebanon, and his fugitive son accused of beheading troops taken hostage in August.

Miqati recently pledged allegiance to ISIL leader Ibrahim al-Samarrai, also known as Abubakr al-Baghdadi.

He has been recruiting Lebanese militants to fight alongside the ISIL terrorists in Lebanon and Syria.

Lebanese troops also raided the historical market of Tripoli to arrest militants holed up there.

During the raid, the army also seized weapons, ammunition and explosive belts.

Tensions have soared in Lebanon since August when the army fought deadly clashes with the Al-Qaeda-affiliate Al-Nusra Front in the border town of Arsal.

The Takfiri terrorists abducted more than three dozen soldiers and security forces in Lebanon. They have executed at least three of the hostages.

They also demand the release of a number of militants in Lebanese jails in exchange for the captive Lebanese soldiers and policemen.

Over the past months, Lebanon has been suffering from terrorist attacks by al-Qaeda-affiliated militants as well as random rocket attacks, which are viewed as a spillover of the conflict in Syria gripped by a deadly crisis since 2011.
