No army personnel were reported injured or killed in the raid on Arsal, a town which militants briefly overran in 2014. The army says it stages regular operations against Islamic State and former al Qaeda-linked militants in the mountainous region.

“An army unit carried out a swift raid at dawn today in Arsal, resulting in the arrest of 10 dangerous terrorists who had previously infiltrated it,” the military statement said.

A number of attacks in Lebanon in recent years have been linked to the war in Syria, where Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah is fighting in support of President Bashar al-Assad.
