The Lebanese Army expanded shelling along the northeastern border with Syria Tuesday, as a soldier and a fugitive were killed in a military raid in the northern region of Akkar.The Army has also shelled militant positions on the outskirts of Ras Baalbek, on the barren mountainsides lining the Bekaa Valley, for 10-15 minutes every few hours, in a bid to discourage attacks. A strategy of pre-emptive shelling was implemented in January, after eight soldiers, including an officer, were killed and 22 others wounded in clashes with ISIS militants on the edge of Ras Baalbek.
