The Arab League has voiced solidarity with Lebanon in its battle against terrorism, underlining the need to bolster the Lebanese Army's capabilities to confront takfiri organizations, like ISIS and Syria's Al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, according to a statement released Monday by the Foreign Ministry.Among other things, the ministers agreed to take "necessary measures" to confront terrorist groups, including ISIS.Referring to five days of deadly fighting between the Lebanese Army and ISIS and Nusra Front militants in and around the northeastern town of Arsal last month, the council condemned the "deplorable attacks on Arsal and its surroundings".The Arab League also welcomed Lebanon's initiative for contacting the prosecutor general of the International Criminal Court to condemn war crimes committed by Israel during its war on the Gaza Strip and crimes against humanity perpetrated by terrorist groups in Iraq.
