BEIRUT: Police intelligence personnel deployed heavily Friday in the Beirut neighborhood of Al-Tariq al-Jadideh over suspected explosives, the National News Agency said.
No explosives were found during the raid.
Officers from the Internal Security Forces' Information Branch were seen searching buildings with the help of police dogs, as other security forces blocked Abu Shaker Street, preventing passersby and vehicles from approaching or entering the area.
The state-run news agency said the measures were over suspected explosives in the neighborhood.
Earlier this week, the Army raided several areas in Al-Tariq al-Jadideh and arrested two suspects, part of a larger security plan to crack down on terror cells operating in the country.
