The Lebanese Armed Forces shot three members of the jihadist group Al-Nusra Front at a closed checkpoint in the Wadi Hmeid area between the Syrian border and the Eastern Beqaa town of Arsal, killing one and injuring the other two.

The three Syrian men–later identified as Ziad Issa, Eyad Samra and Ibrahim Hisyan–attempted to drive through the checkpoint on a motorcycle without obeying orders to stop, the National News Agency reported on Thursday.

An exchange of fire between the three men and the LAF led to the death of Issa and the injury of Samra and Hisyan.
