Jean Kahwagi said the military would carry on with its security plan in Tripoli until stability was entirely restored, as Army units continued their raids to arrest wanted individuals Thursday.Kahwagi toured several neighborhoods in Tripoli, inspecting military units and holding talks with officers.The Lebanese Army also intervened in the Wadi Nahle area in the Beddawi neighborhood following a private dispute.The suspects were also accused of plotting terrorist acts and trying to kill Army soldiers in Wadi Khaled.Meanwhile, the Army arrested 10 Syrian nationals in the northeastern town of Arsal, at the Wadi Hamayyed checkpoint, after they entered Lebanon with forged papers. Separately, the Lebanese Army arrested late Thursday a Syrian man in Arsal who had an explosives belt weighing 5 kilograms, media reports said. Dakhakhni called on the group to fight Hezbollah and its affiliated Resistance Brigades should they enter Iqlim al-Kharroub but warned it not to cooperate with Salafist Sheikh Ahmad Assir, as the latter was more interested in attacking the Lebanese Army than Hezbollah.
