The family of Lebanese soldier Abbas Medlej, a Shiite from the eastern city of Baalbak, say that photos posted online by ISIS apparently showing his beheading are real. The group says he was killed attempting to escape. If confirmed, he would be the second Lebanese soldier to be killed by the group. His mother, Zeinab Noun:
My son was sacrificed.
She says the family will seek retribution against Sunnis:
We have to take our revenge from those apostates.
