The army intelligence detained on Saturday a Lebanese citizen and a Syrian national who were transferring arms in Brital, the National News Agency reported.
According to NNA, Lebanese Ahmed D. is from the eastern border town of al-Tufail and the Syrian national from al-Kahloun family.
The report said that the two were transporting weapons, silencers, ammunition and sniper rifles from the town of Ain al-Jawze in Brital.
Syria and Lebanon on Wednesday traded accusations about cross-border violations, each saying the other had breached their shared frontier.
The Lebanese-Syrian border area is used by smugglers and by Syrians fleeing the violence in their country to Lebanon.
Lebanon and Syria share a 330-kilometer border but have yet to agree on official demarcation.
