A Syrian suspect who was being treated at a Bekaa Valley hospital for wounds sustained in recent clashes with the Lebanese Army in Ras Baalbek has emerged as a key ISIS commander, a Lebanese Army statement said Friday.The Army said Ghorli confessed he belonged to ISIS and that he had headed an armed group that pledged allegiance to ISIS in July 2014 and made a decision to attack military positions following the arrest of Imad Jomaa.However, a Syrian rebel source told The Daily Star that Ghorli, a Syrian national, is a member of the Nusra Front, not ISIS.
