The Internal Security Forces collected information that extremist cells were gearing up to attack several targets in Lebanon, Ad-Diyar daily reported Sunday.One document dated April 8, 2014, said that six members of ISIS – five Saudis and one Iraqi -- were currently operating in the northern Bekaa Valley village of Arsal on the border with Syria and were looking to access the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh in south Lebanon using forged IDs.According to the document, the ages of the cell's members ranged between 28 and 45 and they operate using forged Palestinian IDs and are preparing for attacks across Lebanon. In 2007, clashes between the Lebanese Army and Fatah al-Islam at the north Lebanon refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared leveled the camp and displaced tens of thousands of families, the majority of which have yet to return to their homes seven years after the conflict ended.
