On Friday, a terrorist group affiliated with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) reportedly captured Burj Al-Muraqbat (Muraqbat Tower) in the Wadi Khaled area of the Tripoli Governorate after a violent battle with the Lebanese Armed Forces near the Syrian border.

Wadi Khaled is located in the ‘Akkar District of Tripoli; it is notorious for having a large militant presence that has participated in the Syrian conflict.

The Lebanese Armed Forces are countering the terrorists at Burj Al-Muraqbat; however, the hostile population makes it very difficult for them to operate.
