Threats of terrorist attacks still exist in Lebanon

BEIRUT, June 5 (Xinhua) -- Threats of more terrorist attacks are possible, Lebanese military sources told Asharq al-Awsat local newspaper.

"Security forces were capable of undermining terrorists' activities in Lebanon, but threats of possible terrorist attacks are still existed," the local newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The military sources also warned against the return of terrorists from Syria to Lebanon.

However, the terrorists are not capable of working in groups after strict measures were taken by Lebanese military personnel, the source noted.

A terrorist attack hit Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli on Tuesday early morning when a member of the Islamic State (IS) blew himself up after being pursued and cornered by the police and Internal Security Forces.
