Eight Lebanese servicemen held hostage by Daesh (ISIS) are in good health and the militant group is willing to negotiate with the Lebanese government for their release, a Lebanese source who is following up the case said Wednesday.The motive behind Daesh's readiness to negotiate for the release of the Lebanese soldiers could be its rivalry with the Nusra Front to control the outskirts of Arsal, where the two militant groups are entrenched, the source said. He added that Daesh was annoyed at seeing the Nusra Front's banners and flags being hoisted in an area near the Syrian border following the front's release of the last 16 servicemen it was holding in a swap deal with the Lebanese government last month.
