BEIRUT: General Security officers Tuesday arrested two Syrian women at Lebann's border after they allegedly attempted to sneak a child into Syria with fake documents.

“General Security arrested F.M. and S.A. when they were leaving to Syria through the Abboudieh border crossing, over their attempt to smuggle a girl to Syria with documents that do not belong to her,” a General Security statement said.
