BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army arrested several people in north Lebanon after raiding a Syrian refugee camp, the state-owned National News Agency said.
The terse dispatch from NNA’s correspondent in the northern province of Akkar said troops raided an unofficial camp for Syrian refugees in Khirbet Daoud.
NNA said a number of suspects were arrested in the dawn raid. It did not give details.
The raid came after a five-day battle between the Lebanese Army and Syrian rebels from the radical Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria in the northeastern town of Arsal.
