The army reportedly detained overnight four terrorist kingpins in the Bekaa town of Chtaura.
The arrest occurred while the four men were passing in the town, Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) reported on Monday.
Security sources told al-Manar TV that a Syrian terrorist, Yasser al-Ayrouti, and three others were detained in West Bekaa as they were on their way from the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal.
The detainees are comprised of two prominent leaders from the Free Syrian Army, a leader from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and another from the al-Qaida-affiliated al-Nusra Front.
The army has come under growing attacks across Lebanon by militants who accuse it of colluding with Hizbullah in its intervention in the Syrian conflict on the side of the regime.
The military has been carrying out a major crackdown in several areas across Lebanon, the latest in the Bekaa over the weekend, where it kicked off a major security operation.
