ISIS Attacks Lebanon and Yemen

ISIS attacked a Christian village in Lebanon and Government forces in Yemen over the weekend.

The Lebanese village of Qaa, a Christian enclave was targeted on Monday in two waves of suicide attacks that killed five people. The first group of bombers attacked before dawn and the second later at night, two of them blowing themselves up near a church.

Refugee camps hosting Syrian refugees number well over 1 million in Lebanon.

Local authorities had imposed curfews on Syrian refugees in the area following the attacks.

Three coordinated Islamic State bomb attacks on Yemeni government forces killed 38 people in the southern port city of Mukalla on Monday, medics and security sources said.

They said 24 other people were wounded in the bombings, which occurred just as soldiers were about to break their day-long fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the attack via their online news agency, Amaq.
