This week's Cabinet meeting will include a discussion on launching a Judicial Council investigation into the events that led to clashes in Lebanon's northeastern region in 2014, lawyers representing the families of slain servicemen stated Wednesday. The families of two Lebanese servicemen killed in violence that shook the country's northeastern region between 2012 and 2017 had asked that the ministers of justice and defense to refer the issue of the clashes to the Judicial Council, the highest court in Lebanon.The issue culminated in August 2014 when Daesh (ISIS) and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham – then known as the Nusra Front – briefly overran the northeastern Lebanese town of Arsal, prompting an Army counteroffensive to regain the conurbation.The case of the missing servicemen came to an end following a near 10-day Army offensive in August to drive Daesh out of Lebanon.
