Army Foils Two Lebanon-Syria Smuggling Attempts
The army on Monday thwarted two attempts to smuggle foodstuffs across the Lebanese-Syrian border.
“An army unit intercepted a pickup truck in the Bekaa area of al-Misherfeh and foiled an attempt to smuggle 8,360 kilograms of fruits from Lebanon into Syria,” an army statement said.
Separately, an army unit stopped another pickup truck carrying two people who were trying to smuggle quantities of spoiled and unspoiled foodstuffs from Syria into Lebanon.
The detainees and the confiscated material were eventually referred to the competent judicial authorities.
