The General Security Department announced on Tuesday the arrest of a Syrian man who has admitted to belonging to a terrorist organization.


The Syrian has also told investigators that he had fought alongside terrorist groups in Syria and had smuggled gunmen and wanted individuals from Syria to Lebanon, said the communique issued by the agency.


On Monday, General Security said it referred to the judiciary a Lebanese who has set up a gang that forges documents and smuggles people, mainly Syrians, from and to Lebanon.


It warned foreigners “not to fall in the trap of such fraudulent activities,” advising them to get in touch with Lebanese authorities through a call center.
