The army announced on Tuesday the arrest of a number of suspects in Beirut's southern suburb of Dahieh.
It said that Hamza Rashid Zoaiter, Mohammed Wehbe Zeineddine, Abbas Samih Hjoula, Karam Ramez Zeineddine, and Hassan Jamil Mannoun were arrested at dawn on charges of opening fire and brandishing weapons.
Four hunting rifles, a hand grenade, ammunition, and military equipment were seized in the possession of Mannoun.
The suspects have since been referred to the concerned authorities for investigation.
Last week, the army arrested 12 suspects in Dahieh on similar charges.
The arrests have risen in frequency since the army and security forces began implementing a security plan in the area, as well as the northern city of Tripoli and the eastern Bekaa region.
