The Lebanese army defused two suicide explosive belts in the outskirts of Fnaideq in northern Akkar after confessions made by two detainees, the National News Agency reported on Tuesday.

The suspects, who were detained a few days earlier, were identified by their initials as S.H.Z and W.W.M, confessed to have hidden the belts in the said area, NNA said.

VDL (93.3) earlier reported: “The Intelligence Directorate defused two explosive belts in the outskirts of Fnaideq after an IS detainee confessed to have hidden them earlier.”
