Two suicide bombers kill six people and injure 13 in Eastern Lebanon

Two suicide bombers blew themselves in a village in Eastern Lebanon, local media reported.

The explosion occurred in the village of Qaa, located near the Syrian border — on the road leading to the Syrian Homs.

In August 2014, the Lebanese army clashed with Daesh and the Al-Nusra Front, in the town of Arsal. Extremists kidnapped 30 soldiers and policemen as they withdrew. An exchange was later made for 16 captives and the release of extremist prisoners jailed in Lebanon.

Since the start of the five-year civil war in Syria, Lebanon has become home to over a million Syrian refugees.
