BEIRUT, June 14 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's state security arrested Friday a Syrian national for facilitating the illegal entry of nine Syrian refugees to Lebanon, local media reported.

All 10 Syrian nationals were arrested in south of Litani and they were referred to a police station in Rashaya al-Fakhar for further investigations and other legal procedures, according to Elnashra, an online independent newspaper.

The Lebanese security forces have been trying to crack down on smuggling in areas close to the border with Syria.

Also, Lebanon's Higher Defense Council instructed the country's General Security to send away Syrian refugees who entered Lebanon in an illegal way to curb human trafficking.
