Hezoullah fighters launched an attack against Daesh positions in the outskirts of Ras Baalbek, killing and wounding several, al-Manar TV reported on Monday.

The attack was launched against a position in the al-Zwaytini where Hezbollah was able to destroy the militants' fortifications.

Sources of al-Manar said that Hezbollah had attacked the group when it was receiving reinforcements. It targeted the Daesh positions with machine guns and shelled their positions leading to a number of unspecified casualties.

The Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) said that Hezbollah was able to take control of the military point.

Daesh and al-Nusra Front, two militant groups based in Syria, have launched several attacks in northern Lebanon.
