Lebanon’s state security authorities arrested on Monday four Syrian nationals who are “members of terrorist groups,” local media reported.

The four were arrested over charges of attacking the Lebanese army and a police station in Aarsal, northeast of Lebanon, in 2014, according to Elnashra, an online independent newspaper.

The arrested people were transferred to the judicial bodies for further investigations and other legal procedures.

At the beginning of this year, Lebanon’s state security body also arrested Syrian nationals belonging to al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front and the Islamic State extremist group.

The Interior Ministry has announced that Internal Security Forces succeeded in thwarting nine terrorist attacks in 2018.
