The Lebanese town of Arsal near the Syrian border has been under tight military control since 2014 after fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group overran it, killing and kidnapping dozens of police officers and soldiers.

In recent weeks, the army has intensified its crackdown on ISIL fighters it says are still in the area.

Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab reports from Arsal.
