Lebanese Army stops human smuggling operation

Beirut, Dec 1 (Prensa Latina) The Lebanese Army stopped a human trafficking operation aiming to transport migrants to Europe, reported the Board of Orientation .

34 immigrants of Iraqi and Syrian nationality were captured as they prepared to sail illegally to European soil.

Three other Syrian individuals were also detained during the operation for their direct involvement in the smuggling network.

According to the statement, the Lebanese authorities began an investigation on the detainees under the supervision of the competent justice, while the arresting of persons still involved, continues.

According to local publications, Lebanon faces a significant increase in immigration rates as a result of the economic and financial collapse, which is dragging four out of five citizens into poverty.
