BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army is in pursuit of a number of individuals following the weekend discovery of an arms cache at the residence of one of the suspects in Hermel, northeast Lebanon.

In a statement Sunday, the military said it raided houses in Al-Qasr belonging to suspects it said were involved in a shooting incident in the northeastern border town earlier in the day.

"The Army raided the houses of several people who were involved in the shooting incident and found in one of the residences a number of hand grenades, ammunition, several telecommunications devices, Syrian and Lebanese license plates, and military gear," the Army said.

The military said it had also confiscated a Mercedes Benz outside one of the houses and was in pursuit of the suspected shooters.
