The state-run National News Agency reported that Syrian refugees hoisted on Thursday the flag of the Islamic State in front of Arsal’s municipal building to denounce the raids conducted by Lebanese Armed Forces in the northeastern border town.

Lebanese troops arrested on Thursday 448 people during raids on Syrian refugee tented settlements in the border town of Arsal, including an official in the al-Nusra Front and a defected Syrian officer.

The arrestees are armed men who are suspected of carrying out attacks in the town.

Arsal, whose residents have been supporting the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad, is currently hosting 47,000 Syrian refugees.

Many of them sought refuge in the border town after Syrian government troops ousted rebels from the Qalamoun region over the border.
