The army announced on Monday the arrest of two suspects linked to unrest in the northern region of Bhannine and city of Tripoli in October.

It said that Lebanese Ibrahim Mohammed al-Saghir was detained in the North for belonging to a terrorist group.

He is suspected of taking part in the Bhannine clashes against the army, tossing hand grenades against military positions, and firing a rocket propelled grenade.

The rocket attack led to the death of a soldier, added the army communique.

The second suspect was identified as Lebanese Dabbah Maan Jahjah, who was arrested in the Metn region.

He took part in the October unrest in Tripoli where he tossed hand grenades at residences and opened fire at soldiers on the Halba-Qoubaiyat road.

A soldier was killed and another wounded in that attack.

Investigations are underway with the detainees.

Dozens of people were killed and injured in October when militants engaged in clashes with the military in Tripoli, Bhannine and surrounding areas.

A number of suspects linked to the unrest have been arrested in recent weeks.
