The Lebanese Army Friday arrested six Syrian terror suspects during a series of raids in the Bekaa Valley which aimed at preventing a possible fallout from recent dramatic developments in Iraq.Speaking to The Daily Star, an Army source described the raids as a pre-emptive operation in order to thwart potential security incidents in Lebanon after the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), an Al-Qaeda splinter group, made major advances in Iraq. The military operation also came after several kidnapping operations were carried out in the Bekaa Valley by armed Syrian groups stationed along Lebanon's border.Security sources in the Bekaa Valley said Friday's arrests were made during a raid at a Syrian refugee site near Arsal. The Army has also fortified its checkpoints in the Bekaa Valley, according to the source.
