"For us, the essential equation will always remain: Lebanese people, Lebanese state and Lebanese army", Geagea stressed.

Lebanese militant group Hezbollah launched its own simultaneous attack against ISIS from the Syrian side of the border in an area known as west Qalamun.

Mayadeen is an IS-held city near Syria's eastern border with Iraq. Hezbollah, on the other hand, is reporting that several IS combatants have surrendered and turned over the bodies of two Lebanese soldiers while promising to help search for the ones who are unaccounted for. The fate of nine soldiers that Islamic State took captive then remains unknown.

The army had reported slow progress in recent days as it dismantled bombs left behind by ISIL fighters as they retreated.

Talks have begun with mediation by the head of Lebanon's internal security agency, a security source said. By late afternoon, however, there was still no word. The Lebanese army has claimed that the intention of signing a ceasefire truce was to sit down for negotiations to search for its missing soldiers.

The lecturer took the alleged attacker's baseball bat and opened the door to allow the students to run. The attacker had been a student of the statistics class for four weeks, Mr Claessens said.

The army later released a statement saying the remains of eight bodies had been retrieved from the Jurud Arsal mountainous border area with Syria and taken to a military hospital for DNA testing.

The Syrian Air Force and Artillery inflicted heavy losses upon ISIL terrorist organization after bombarding its supply routes and positions in the neighborhoods of al-Hamidiyeh, al-Howeiqa and al-Rashdiyeh and in the villages and towns of Howeijet Saqer, al-Tibni, al-Shmaitiyeh, Aiyash, al-Kharita and al-Bhailiyeh.

ISIL also threatened to overrun Ras Baalbek and Qaa in 2014, and claimed responsibility for striking Qaa with a series of bombings previous year that killed five people. They departed for insurgent territory in Syria after offensives by Hizballah and the Syrian regime.

Last week, Lebanon and Hezbollah each announced they had made significant gains against ISIL fighters, driving them back into a smaller part of the arid hills on the border.

There are around 10,000 Syrian refugees living in Qaa, and Mr Matar said he hoped they would also return soon.
