Lebanon's Army commander Gen. Jean Kahwagi has declared an open-ended war with Islamist militants on the Syria border after seven soldiers were killed in recent attacks.Kahwagi indicated that Islamist extremist groups – ISIS and Nusra Front – had been shaken up by the Army's "pre-emptive strikes".Kahwagi, however, evaded a direct response when asked whether the militants' recent deadly attacks against the Lebanese Army were linked to the arrest of Saja Dulaimi, the ex-wife of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Baghdadi.Kahwagi also would not link recent attacks against the Army in northeast Lebanon to Dulaimi's detention.
