Syrian authorities thwarted an attempt by an “armed terrorist group” to infiltrate Syria from northern Lebanon, Syrian Arab News Agency, SANA, reported Thursday.
It quoted a source in Reef Tall Kalakh as saying that one member of the group was injured while the rest escaped back to Lebanon during a clash with “concerned authorities.”
SANA said that the authorities had foiled another infiltration attempt from Turkey in Idlib governorate on Wednesday night.
“Three terrorists were killed and arms were seized” in clashes with the infiltrators. But several members of the group went back to Turkish territories, the state-run agency added.
Last month, SANA also reported that Syrian authorities thwarted two separate infiltration attempts by "terrorist groups" from Lebanon and Turkey.
