The Lebanese army intelligence thwarted recently a terrorist plot set to target one of the military posts in Beirut, reported Ad Diyar newspaper on Tuesday.
According to the newspaper, the army detained a “dangerous cell” that infiltrated its ranks and plotted to target its posts in Beirut's Karantina area.
The Army revealed in May that it has broken up a cell, detained its members and confiscated a quantity of detonators and explosives.
Media reports said that the network was plotting to assassinate a list of Lebanese politicians and security chiefs to create chaos in the country.
In March last year, the army arrested a takfiri network that was planning to carry out terrorist attacks on the military school in al-Fayyadiyeh and the army barracks in Hamat.
Media reports then described the cell as takfiri with links to the Abdullah Azzam Brigades.
