Security forces thwarted a plot to bomb an area in Beirut at the order of the Islamic State, reported Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) on Saturday.
It said that two Lebanese suspects were tasked by the IS in Syria's al-Qalamoun region to carry out the attack.
The suspects were arrested in May by the General Security and they have been transferred to the Military General Prosecution.
No further details were disclosed.
Hizbullah targets in Lebanon have frequently been the subject of terrorist attacks over the party's involvement in the fighting in Syria alongside the country's ruling regime.
The army and security forces have since been cracking down on various Lebanese and non-Lebanese suspects throughout the country, detaining several on terrorism charges.
