BEIRUT, Lebanon’s state security arrested, on Tuesday, four Syrian nationals, for joining the Daesh militant group.
The Syrians admitted to participating in the 2014 Daesh attack on military centres in Arsal, about 124 km northeast of the capital Beirut, and to seizing weapons of the Lebanese army and selling them.
The arrested suspects were referred to judicial bodies for further investigations and legal procedures.
Lebanon has, in the past few months, arrested a number of terrorist suspects, behind attacks in the country.
The latest terrorist attack in Lebanon was carried out by Abdel Rahman Mabsout, a Daesh member, who blew himself up in the northern city of Tripoli, in June, 2019, killing four members of the Lebanese army and internal security forces.
