BEIRUT: Lebanonese Army units erected Tuesday overnight sand berms along the border with Syria in east Lebanon, a senior security source told The Daily Star.

The source said that the sand berms were erected inside Lebanese territory along a 25-kilometer area extending from the towns of Arsal to Ras Baalbek, the source said.

The army also dug a stretched meter-deep hole along the border to prevent four-wheel drive cars from getting into Lebanon, the source said.

The source added that the army measures come in light of reports about the possibility of smuggling cars rigged with explosives into Lebanon.

Lebanon has been subject to several car bombs in recent months, the latest twin suicidal car blasts hit the vicinity of the Iranian Embassy in Beirut.
