The Internal Security Forces arrested two men who were allegedly planning to carry out attacks in Beirut's southern suburbs and on the Lebanese Army, the agency said in a statement released Monday.According to the statement, this policy enabled the Information Branch to arrest a suspect identified as Syrian national W.R., born in 1996, who the ISF determined had been engaging in suspicious activities in the Aley town of Aramoun.Egyptian forces had been battling Daesh in the peninsula, and the suspects appeared to be inspired by the tactics the militants had used against the army.
