The Lebanese army says its forces have killed five Takfiri militants trying to infiltrate the northeastern border town of Arsal from neighboring Syria.

According to an army statement on Wednesday, the Lebanese troops clashed with the militants of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front late Tuesday, killing five of them, the Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star reported.

The report 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.

Over the past months, Lebanon has been facing terrorist attacks by al-Qaeda-affiliated militants as well as random rocket strikes, which are viewed as a spillover of the conflict in Syria.

Terrorists affiliated with al-Nusra and the ISIL Takfiri group overran Arsal last August, killing and capturing more than three dozen soldiers and security forces there.
