Lebanese army begins offensive against ISIL on border
Military says it is not coordinating with Syrian army regarding operations against ISIL near Ras Baalbek.
The Lebanese army says it has launched an offensive against an ISIL enclave straddling the northeast border with Syria.

The army was targeting positions of ISIL, or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group, near the town of Ras Baalbek with rockets,
artillery
and helicopters, a Lebanese security source said.

It is the last part of the Lebanese-Syrian frontier under ISIL control.

US army sends Lebanon eight Bradley armored vehicles

In the presence of the Lebanese army commander representative and the American ambassador in Beirut, the Lebanese army received eight Bradley armored vehicles in a first batch of $100 million US military aid to Lebanon.
The vehicles are part of 32 others the Lebanese army is expected to receive from Washington in the coming months. This is part of a US investment, estimated at more than $100,000 which aims to supply the Lebanese army with new capabilities

:confused-84: What is this? Why are we paying them 100M in arms? Is this part of the 30-day Plan to defeat Isis?:popcorn:
Can't they die without the 100M in aid?

FYI:
The Lebanese parliament voted this week to abolish an article in the penal code exempting rapists from punishment if they marry their victims, but women's rights activists say this does not go far enough.

But back to war, well something?.
Twin offensives target ISIL on Lebanon-Syria border

Lebanese army starts operation near Ras Baalbek while separate Hezbollah-Syrian army offensive begins in Qalamoun.
"They are hoping to push these armed groups out and that Lebanon will essentially secure its border completely, something which they haven't been able to do since the start of the Syrian conflict."

:cuckoo:Hmmm? So what does this do? This is the area and the entertaining activity.
The killing of Allah! Will never stop. Just moves some line, still other push back
for a time. Then, they start all over with newly spawned.
