BEIRUT, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's state security arrested on Friday a Lebanese citizen and a Syrian national in Arsal, around 100 km northeast of capital Beirut, suspected of working with the Islamic State (IS) extremist group, the National News Agency reported.

The Syrian national confessed that he belongs to the IS, and once participated in clashes with the Lebanese army and shot at military centers in Arsal.

This comes after Lebanon's state security announced on Feb. 6 that it has arrested two IS members in Arsal in addition to 18 others on Feb. 1 in the same area. Enditem
