BEIRUT, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's state security arrested two Syrian nationals over their suspected involvement in terrorism activities, the National News Agency reported on Saturday.

The two suspects were arrested in a refugee camp in Arsal in Baalbek and they were referred to a military station for further investigations.

On June 7, Interior Minister Raya El Hassan announced that Lebanese security agencies succeeded in arresting over 30 people planning to implement terrorist attacks in Lebanon since 2016.

The latest terrorist attack in Lebanon was carried out by Abdel Rahman Mabsout, an Islamic State member, who blew himself up in Tripoli earlier this month, killing four members of the Lebanese Army and Internal Security forces.
