The Lebanese army said on Thursday it has arrested two terrorist leaders involved in attacks on the military during the clashes in northern Lebanon last month.

An army communique said the military intelligence apprehended on Wednesday Ayman Abdul Hamid Mheish who leads a terrorist group that was involved in a plot to kidnap Lebanese soldiers in the town of Bhannine on October 25.

The same group fired a grenade at a military vehicle, leaving several soldiers injured, it said.
