Internal Security Forces said Friday it had foiled an attack by a teenage Daesh (ISIS) militant on a mosque in the city of Tripoli. The ISF said in a statement that a police patrol stopped a 14-year-old Lebanese teenager, identified only by the initials R.K., on Aug. 7, as he was trying to enter the Grand Mansouri Mosque. During questioning, the teenager admitted that he had planned to throw the hand grenades into the religious site as worshippers were praying, before tackling the ISF officer who stood outside to guard the entrance, overpower him and steal his gun. He then planned to use the gun to shoot anyone who was still alive in the mosque, he reportedly told police. Syrian intelligence officers were indicted in that attack.
