Dec 22, 2011

BEIRUT, (SANA)-A Lebanese Government source stated Wednesday that Lebanese security apparatus informed the Government of the infiltration of al-Qaeda members into Syria through Arsal border town in East Lebanon.

AFP quoted the Lebanese source, who preferred to speak on condition of anonymity, as saying that Lebanese Security forces meeting with Prime Minister Najib Mikati, several weeks ago, presented information about the entrance of al-Qaeda members into Syria pretending they were members of the Syrian opposition.

Fayez Ghosn, Lebanese Defense Minister meeting Lebanese senior army officers on Tuesday , underlined the information about operations taking place at some illegal crossings between Syria and Lebanon , particularly in Arsal where weapons and armed terrorist members from al-Qaeda were crossing into Syria, claiming they were members of the Syrian opposition.

Arsal town is located in the Lebanese al-Bekaa East region bordering Syria with Homs.
