In August 2014, gunmen from the Islamic State and al-Qaida-affiliated al-Nusra Front overran Arsal, near border with Syria , clashed with the army and left scores dead.

The gunmen withdrew from the town shortly after the clashes, but abducted with them dozens of servicemen.

Four of them have been executed, while a number of others were released, including all 16 who were being held by al-Nusra Front.

Nine hostages are still being held by IS.
