IS threatens to execute captured Lebanese soldiers
Almaty. November 17. KazTAG - Militants of «Islamic state» on Monday declared again about their intentions to execute captured Lebanese soldiers, informs RIA Novosti referring to Lebanese TV Channel LBC.
About 30 Lebanese soldiers and law enforcers were taken captives by militants of «Islamic state» and «Djebhat an-Nusra» in early August, during their attack at the city of Ersal, which borders with Syria. Then terrorists demanded Lebanese government to release 400 of their compatriots.
However, the Lebanese government refused to satisfy their demands and turned to Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia for help. Beirut hopes that these countries can somehow influence the islamists. Since the time of abduction islamists have executed three soldiers.
