Beirut, Lebanon (3:30 P.M.) – The Lebanese Army arrested 49 Syrians on Tuesday morning for illegally entering the country, the National News Agency of Lebanon reported this afternoon.

The 49 Syrians reportedly attempted to cross into the Ba’albak Highlands from the Syria’s Rif Dimashq Governorate before they were apprehended by the Lebanese Army.

Over the last 48 hours, the Lebanese Army has arrested over 100 Syrians for illegally entering the country; this number will likely rise in the coming days as they crackdown on illegal immigrants.
