The Lebanese army announced on Tuesday the arrest of two top ISIS commanders in the town of Arsal on the eastern border, seizing a weapons cache that belonged to the organization, which had occupied Lebanese territories in the Ras Baalbak area, adjacent to Syria.

A statement by the Lebanese army said that the Intelligence Department arrested two key ISIS commanders, Ibrahim Ahmad Zaarour (Lebanese) and Ouday Hussein Khatib (Syrian), in Arsal.

The statement added that the two men had participated in the battles against the Lebanese army in Arsa, and planned terrorist attacks through booby-trapped vehicles and explosive devices.
