One person was killed and another was wounded as the Lebanese Army foiled an infiltration and smuggling attempt in the border region of al-Masnaa on Friday, the military said.
“An army force thwarted at dawn an attempt by a group of smugglers to infiltrate into Lebanese territory at the Masnaa area of Tallet al-Manara,” an army statement said.
It added: “The smugglers fired at army troops, who responded in kind, which resulted in the death of one of them (smugglers) and the wounding of another, who was arrested and transferred to a hospital in the region for treatment, as the rest fled to Syrian territory.”
“Army units are taking the necessary security measures to preserve security and stability and control the border in the region,” the army reassured.
