Fighting broke out between Lebanese troops and gunmen on Friday, in an area that has seen regular incursions from Islamist militants fighting in Syria's war, the Lebanese army said in a statement.

The statement said a large number of "terrorists" had been killed as well as a number of soldiers but did not give figures. Soldiers repelled an attack on an army post close to the village of Ras Baalbek, near the Syrian frontier.
