The Lebanese army began Wednesday morning a deployment operation in eastern border areas liberated from the terrorist Islamic State group, as it started preparations to launch the fourth stage of Operation Dawn of the Outskirts, an army statement said.

Engineering units were excavating new routes and searching for landmines and explosives, the statement added.

The Army Command stressed that “there will be no ceasefire with the terrorist groups until they are completely routed.”

Separately, the army announced the death of 31-year-old First Sergeant Walid Mahmoud Freij after he succumbed at dawn Wednesday to wounds sustained in an August 19 landmine explosion in Ras Baalbek's outskirts.

The army had announced Tuesday that it became in control of 100 out of 120 square kilometers of territory previously held by IS after capturing several strategic hills and areas throughout the day.
