The Lebanese army detected an Israeli spy device in a liberated part of Lebanese land along the occupied Shebaa Farms, the Army Command Orientation directorate said in a statement on Saturday.

“On September 9, 2016 an army task force discovered a spy device that belongs to the Israeli enemy inside liberated Lebanese lands near the occupied Shebaa Farms. An army patrol headed to the location and found that the Israeli enemy has already removed the device and moved it inside occupied lands,” said the statement.

The Israeli breach is being followed up by the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon, it added.

Also the army arrested two Lebanese citizens on the coastal city of Jbeil, north of Beirut for helping Syrian nationals illegally enter into Lebanon, the Army Command Orientation Directorate said in a statement on Saturday.

“An Intelligence bureau patrol arrested two Lebanese citizens in Jbeil, Youssef Shawkat Amer and Ali Qassem al-Ajami, on charges of smuggling six Syrians into Lebanon,” said the statement.

After intensive investigations, the General Directorate of General Security arrested a cell belonging to a terrorist group linked to the Ksara bombing in the eastern town of Zahle which claimed the life of a woman and wounded many others, the National News Agency reported.

As a result of confessions of the detainees, a force of the General Security raided an apartment and seized a device which was used in remotely detonating the bomb.

The General Security also seized a Renault rapid vehicle used by cell members to transport the explosive device.

Investigations are still ongoing with detainees under the supervision of the concerned general prosecution.

Efforts are underway to apprehend the remaining culprits.
