The Lebanese army arrested two Palestinian nationals in Nahr al-Bared in the northern city of Tripoli for preparing to illegally smuggle people to Turkey in a fishing boat, the Lebanese army Orientation Directorate said in a statement.

Palestinians Mohammed Saleh and Mohammed Majzoub were apprehended on Saturday during a raid that an army unit carried out in the Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp.

They were trying to illegally smuggle people to Turkey by sea using a fishing boat, the statement added.

Furthermore, the army raided a residential apartment in Jabal al-Beddawi and arrested 21 Palestinians for a bid to travel outside Lebanon in an illegal manner with the help of the above.
