Fighters from al-Qaeda’s Jabhat al-Nusra, backed by fighters loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), have invaded Lebanon today, attacking the key border town of Arsal and engaging the Lebanese military in combat.
Lebanese security forces arrested a Nusra commander early in the day and were holding him in Arsal when the fighters attacked the city outright, engaging in battles which are continuing overnight.
The most current reports were that 11 Islamists, 7 Lebanese soldiers, and 3 civilians were killed in the fighting, and unconfirmed reports are that as many as 16 soldiers were taking hostage, though the military insisted only two were captured, and recovered.
The Nusra fighters also sacked the police station in Arsal, and were trying to exchange captured police for their commander, though the indications are that the military recovered the station in an offensive.

It seems ISIS is doing an outstanding job of attacking countries which “israel” wants destabilized and destroyed while receiving military and other assistance from the USG.
Oddly enough, ISIS has not attacked “israel”, preferring to kill only Shi’a Muslims (i.e. the ones who have provided support to the Sunni Muslims of Gaza).
Am I the only person who finds that rather odd?
Get a grip on yourself. Muslims killing muslims ain't new, they do it all the time. Its considered "Holy" as that is ordained for them in the "Holy" koran. its easy to see why the Jews are hated so much by the muslims. It is the height of delusion to be among the most backward and primitive and imagine yourself to be the most advanced.
How many people who indulge in Israel bashing every chance they get would go live in a muslim majority country? You wouldn't want to be caught dead over there.
Get a grip on yourself. In fact, most muslims "ain't" killing each other. Muslim states in south-east Asia are usually quite stable; north african muslim countries also are mostly stable, whenever they are not being invaded by NATO. Actually, the current muslim countries that are waging war internally are Nigeria, Soudan, Somalia for Africa, and Iraq and Syria for the Middle East … see a pattern here?
That's right, those are either the poorest countries in the world or those that are of special interest for NATO and Israel … mmmh, but then again it might also just be because they're filthy muslims and don't believe in our lord Jesus Christ 😉
Speaking of religion, you might want to start a new trend and grab a History book, and actually check how many europeans have been killed in civil wars the last 500 years in the name of Catholicism, Protestantism or Orthodoxy.
"You wouldn't want to be caught dead over there"
You can stay safe in your mother's basement, far from any scary foreign places sippin Pepsis at Booger kling…. And B-sure to look both wayz when venturing across those deadly streets in your neighborhood… The world awaits you on the travel channel……
You are right to question the narrative. ISIS is funded and supported by the Gulf monarchies and the US. The plan to partition Iraq is quite an old one and ISIS is part of that plan. The Saudis will pretend to feel 'threatened' by ISIS for the sake of appearances, the US will do nothing substantial to stop them.
How are they going to attack "ïsrael"? with drones?
