Twelve Syrian nationals have been arrested on Wednesday in the northern area of Zgharta for illegal entry into Lebanon, the State-run National News Agency reported.

Lebanese army patrol staged raids against encampments of Syrian refugees in the Zgharta town of Mezyara, and arrested 12 Syrians for sneaking into Lebanese territories.

The security forces have carried out raids against various Syrian refugee encampments in Lebanon in search of wanted suspects.

A number of suspects have been arrested, several of whom were charged with belonging to terrorist groups.

The un-demarcated porous Lebanese-Syrian border has facilitated the flow of gunmen to and from Syria.
