ISF Arrests Lebanese Linked with Salafist al-Nour Brigades


The Internal Security Forces arrested a Lebanese national in the eastern Bekaa valley on charges of carrying out terrorist attacks in the area in favor of the Salafist al-Nour Brigades, an ISF statement said on Monday.

The detainee was arrested on charges of tossing explosives in towns and villages in the Bekaa in collaboration with a Lebanese who had been arrested earlier.

He is also accused of tasking unknown individuals of taking photos of certain targets in Bekaa towns in favor of the terrorist al-Nour Brigades which is commissioned to carry out attacks to destabilize Lebanon's security and stability.

A defected Syrian officer is said to be the instigator behind al-Nour Brigades and has commissioned them to carry out the attacks, the statement added.

Investigations are being made to find all members involved.
