Future Movement MP Jamal Jarrah denied Sunday that residents were fleeing the outskirts of the northeastern, restive border town of Arsal due to ongoing fighting between ISIS and the Nusra Front.Intermittent but fierce fighting between the rival extremists has been ongoing since Wednesday, when Nusra militants launched a surprise attack on ISIS posts in Syria's mountainous Qalamoun region, which extends east of Lebanon's border town Arsal.The militants have been holed up in the mountainous border region around Arsal since August 2014, and are surrounded by Hezbollah mainly from the west and the Syrian army from the east.
