The army arrested this week in the Bekaa border town of Arsal 15 Syrian citizens on charges of illegal entry into the country and involvement in security-linked cases.

“Over the past three days, the Lebanese Army apprehended in the town of Arsal 15 Syrians, some of whom had entered Lebanon illegally and others are involved in security-linked cases,” state-run National News Agency reported.

The detainees were referred to the relevant authorities, NNA added.

On Saturday, an armed Syrian national was arrested in Arsal as he was trying to infiltrate the border region.

Ever since the Syrian revolt erupted in March 2011, Arsal has served as a key conduit for refugees, rebels and wounded people fleeing strife-torn Syria.

Last week, the army said it arrested seven Syrians in Arsal for trying to enter Lebanon illegally.

Good news is always good news, we catch 15 Syrians, yet did not see 2 millions that entered the country and moving around as if the country was theirs. Good news, what else?
