GENERAL SECURITY ARRESTS LEBANESE ON TERROR LINKS

The General Security Directorate said in a statement on Friday that "in the context of following up the activities of terrorist groups inside and outside the Lebanese territory, and building on the reference of the competent public prosecutor, the General Directorate of the Lebanese General Security arrested a Lebanese for belonging to a terrorist organization."

He had obtained a Lebanese passport via which he left for Turkey and then entered the Syrian territory with the help of a smuggler who took him to the Al-Raqqa area, and from there to Iraq, where he stayed in the city of Mosul and fought alongside the terrorist organization.

After thorough interrogation, the arrestee was referred to the competent court.
