LA Arrests 3 Syrians, One Admits of Being Involved in Soldier Beheading

The Lebanese army arrested three Syrians, one of whom admitted to witnessing the beheading of a Lebanese soldier taken captive by terrorists in the northeastern border town of Arsal.

Martyr MedlejOne of the three Syrians, who had infiltrated Lebanon and were arrested in the Baalbek town of Iaat three days ago, admitted to being involved in the beheading of soldier Abbas Medlej, who was the second captive to be killed by the terrorists.

As soon as the news of the arrest spread earlier on Friday, the family of martyr Medlej cut the road of Baalbek-Douris demanding the punishment of the arrested terrorists who beheaded their son. But the road was reopened in both directions hours later.

The father of martyr Medlej called on the state during the protest to punish the apprehended Syrians accused of beheading his son or to hand him over in a bid to punish the criminal himself. In turn, the mother of the martyr called on the state not to bow to foreign states and to punish the criminal, according to the National News Agency.
