    BEIRUT: Saudi Arabia has given Lebanon’s military $1 billion to help its fight against jihadists on the Syrian border, as the army’s chief urged France to speed up promised weapons supplies. After fighting in the eastern area on Tuesday, where troops have been clashing with militants since Saturday, ambulances entered the town of Arsal amid reports of a truce. Earlier, three policemen being held by jihadists were released, and there was a brief lull in the fighting, but shelling and artillery fire resumed on Tuesday evening, an AFP correspondent said.
