    The Lebanese army says it has killed 20 ISIL fighters while pushing the group out of an area on the Lebanese-Syrian border.

    The army is targeting the group's positions in the country's northeast.

    In a separate operation, Syrian government forces and allied fighters from Hezbollah captured strategic hilltop positions from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, known as ISIS).
