The army announced on Sunday that it has arrested a number of Syrians for attempting to illegally enter Lebanon.

It said that five Syrians were arrested at dawn in the Tallet al-Mrah-al-Masnaa region in the eastern Bekaa.

They were handed over to the General Security.

Two Syrian women were also discovered in the area.

They were found to be in poor health due to the cold weather and have since been transferred by the Red Cross to the al-Mayas Chtaura hospital.

One of the women later passed away.
