The Daily Star - Army raids refugee sites in northeast Lebanon, November 01, 2014

The Lebanese Army launched raids on Syrian refugee gatherings in northeast Lebanon Saturday in search of militants, part of a nationwide crackdown.

The National News Agency said military units raided refugee sites in Ain al-Shaab, located between Labweh and Arsal in the northeastern region, looking for wanted suspects, including gunmen who took part in attacks against the Army last weekend.

Earlier in the day, local reports said the Army foiled an attempt by a group of gunmen into Arsal from the Syrian side of the border. The soldiers engaged in brief clashes with the militants.
