Lebanese authorities arrested two Palestinians for allegedly joining terrorist group
Lebanon’s state security arrested on Tuesday two Palestinians in the southern city of Sidon for allegedly joining a terrorist group, a local media outlet reported.
The two Palestinians were arrested over the charges of possessing explosive materials and transporting unlicensed weapons, said Elnashra, an online independent newspaper.
In the past few months, Lebanon arrested a number of terrorists who were behind attacks in the country.
The latest terrorist attack in Lebanon was carried out by Abdel Rahman Mabsout, an Islamic State militant who blew himself up in Tripoli in August, killing four members of the Lebanese army and internal security forces.
