The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has posted a video via their official Telegram account on Saturday, promising to avenge their losses at the hands of Hezbollah and the Lebanese Armed Forces in the Ba’albak Highlands this weekend.
According to the video footage released by ISIL on Saturday, the terrorist group stated that sooner or later they will get their revenge against the Lebanese Armed Forces, Hezbollah, and the Lebanese political elite that are attempting to eliminate their presence in Lebanon.
The two ISIL militants that appeared in the video had a Lebanese Arabic accent; however, their identities could not be determined.
Hezbollah overpowered the ISIL militants at the village of Beit Ali Al-Agha on Saturday, killing several terrorist combatants while also clearing large swathes of territory in the process.
ISIL’s losses on Friday and Saturday marked their highest number of casualties in east Lebanon this year.
