Lebanon’s state security arrested Tuesday a Syrian suspected of belonging to Islamic State (IS) group, the National News Agency reported.

The Syrian who was arrested in Nabatieh, south of Lebanon, admitted that he has received religious and military training with the IS group while he was in Syria.

The statement added that the arrested Syrian entered Lebanon in an illegal way.

Lebanon’s general security also arrested earlier this month a Syrian belonging to the IS group who had planned to implement terrorist attacks in Sidon, south of Lebanon.

The IS claimed responsibility for an attack on the northern city of Tripoli on June 3, killing two members of the Lebanese security forces and two others from the Lebanese Army.
