Two terror suspects were killed and three others were arrested in an army raid Tuesday in the northeastern border town of Arsal, the military said.

“In light of security information and as part of the preemptive army plan that led to raiding Arsal encampments on June 30, an Intelligence Directorate force raided a terrorist group at dawn in the town of Arsal,” an army statement said.

The group was “plotting terrorist attacks,” the army added.

A clash ensued when the suspects tried to resist the raiding force, which resulted in the death of “Syrian terrorists Yasser al-Ghawi and Atef al-Jaroudi and the arrest of three others,” the statement said.

“Seven bombs that were ready for detonation, an explosive vest and 50 kilograms of bomb-making material were seized, in addition to a quantity of hand grenades and detonators,” the army added.

It also noted that al-Ghawi was “the mastermind of the bombing that targeted Ras Baalbek on May 22.”

On June 30, the army arrested scores of Syrians during raids in refugee encampments in and around Arsal. Twenty of them remain in custody on terror charges.

Five suicide bombers blew themselves up and other militants hurled grenades during the raids, which resulted in the death of a Syrian child and the wounding of seven soldiers, according to the army.

عتبر قائد فيلق القدس التابع للحرس الثوري الإيراني، قاسم سليماني، أن #الجيش_العراقي في طريقه لأن يصبح عقائدياً.
وأشار سليماني إلى أن #الحرس_الثوري عمل على مدار الساعة لتسليح الحشد الشعبي بعد تأسيسه.
وذكر سليماني على هامش مشاركته في تأبين أحد قتلى الحرس في #سوريا، أمس أن حزب الله اللبناني قدم خبراته للحشد، وخسر الكثير من قواته في سوريا والعراق، وفق ما نقلت عنه وكالة "تسنيم" الإيرانية.
في سياق متصل، اعتبر نائب قائد "الحرس الثوري"، حسين سلامي، أن "أذرع المقاومة"، كما سماها، اكتملت في شرق البحر المتوسط، في معرض دفاعه عن دور "الحرس" في المنطقة.

You never hear the heretics blessing the army when the army arrests a few of their junior drug dealers in the Bekaa.
