One militant was killed Tuesday following infighting on the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal.
The state-run National News Agency identified the man as Lebanese national Majd Mohammad Al-Hujeiri, adding that the fighting took place in Wadi Al-Khail.
A source told The Daily Star that Hujeiri belonged to Jabhat Fatah Al-Sham, formerly known as the Nusra Front.
Hundreds of militants belonging to Daesh and Jabhat Fatah Al-Sham are holed up on Arsal's outskirts, and regularly engage in fighting between each other over territorial disputes.
