The army arrested on Monday three fugitives in the eastern Bekaa town of Hermel, and seized hashish and weapons in their possession.

"We have detained Zakaria Hussein Nassereddine, Mohammed Jihad Shamas and Abbas Abdullah Dandash who are wanted on several arrest warrants,” the military institution said in a communique.

"The arrested men fired gunshots at an army patrol and an Internal Security Forces headquarters in Hermel,” the statement clarified.

The detainees had many assault weapons, ammunition, and large quantities of hashish in their possession, according to the communique.

"The three men and the seized weapons and drugs were referred to the competent authority.”

Monday's arrest comes after army troops and security forces kicked off last week implementing a security plan in the northern city of Tripoli and the Bekaa.

The plan has resulted so far in the arrest of over 35 fugitives, and in seizing many stolen vehicles and illegally possessed weapons.

Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq assured that the plan “will not be withdrawn,” and that it will extend to include regions in the northern Bekaa and Beirut.
