A delegation from the government's High Relief Committee led by Gen. Mohammad Kheir Monday visited the east Lebanon town of Arsal to assess damage sustained during five days of fierce fighting between Lebanese troops and militants from Syria.Leading a six-man delegation, Kheir held a meeting with Arsal's mayor, Ali Hujeiri, in the presence of Baalbek-Hermel Governor Bashir Khodor. Some 19 troops, at least 60 militants and over 15 civilians were killed in five days of clashes, which also drove thousands of Arsal's residents and Syrian refugees to flee to safer areas.
