The Lebanese army has detained some 350 people, including members of the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group, during raids on Syrian refugee camps in the northeastern border town of Arsal, a security source says.
Early on Friday, Lebanese troops raided two Syrian refugee camps in the area. During the raids, five bombers attacked the soldiers while a sixth militant threw a hand grenade at a patrol.
The Lebanese military said seven soldiers were injured and a girl was killed as one of the assailants blew himself up in the midst of a family of refugees.
An explosive device also went off during a manhunt for suspected militants in one of the refugee camps, the army said, adding four others were defused.
The security source said the raids were part of a major security sweep in an area that has been a flash point.
The army reportedly conducted the raids after intelligence reports said that militants were preparing to carry out a series of assaults inside Lebanon.
