BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – An Islamic State-linked terrorist launched an attack against the Lebanese General Security Forces in Tripoli city last night, killing at least two military personnel before taking several people hostage.

According to a source, the terrorist, Abdel-Rahman Mabsout, killed two Lebanese General Security personnel at a checkpoint in the Tripoli Serail area before he fled to a building  inside the city.

The Lebanese military was quickly dispatched to the area and besieged the terrorist inside a building on Al-Tawlid Street.

With nowhere to run, Mabsout resorted to detonating his suicide vest and killing himself before the Lebanese Army could apprehend him.

A source from the Lebanese General Security told Al-Masdar that Mabsout previously spent time in prison for terror-related activity.

Well, this b*m was not as efficient as Mugniyeh or Badreddine at doing bombs : at least, when Hezbollah used to do bombings in Beirut, hundreds were martyred. ISIS are amateurs.
Unfortunately, two Lebanese General Security personnel were killed before this idiot did what all mujahideen should consider : committing suicide.
