Beirut, Lebanon (9:30 A.M.) – Earlier this morning, the Lebanese Army raided a Syrian refugee camp near the Hermel District of the North Governorate, arresting over 40 people for a variety of offenses.

The Lebanese Army reported that many of the apprehended Syrian refugees did not have proper identification or paperwork, despite living at this camp in Hermal’s outskirts.

In addition to the arrests at the Syrian refugee camp, the Lebanese  Army also seized several vehicles, including two motorcycles and two automobiles that were not registered in Lebanon.

The Lebanese Army typically carries out these type of raids in order to find terrorists that are hiding or recruiting in these camps.
