Lebanon: Lebanese security forces on Thursday said a Palestinian refugee allegedly linked to Islamic State group over two poisoning plots, one of Lebanese army water and another of food in a foreign country, has been detained.

The Palestinian refugee, born in 1991, has admitted to links with an Islamic State member in Syria “who tasked him with making explosives and concocting poison”, according to a statement from Lebanese authorities.

Al-Arabiya reports:

He prepared to “concoct a quantity of deadly poison along with someone living in a foreign country” for two planned poisonings.

The first was to “poison one of the water tanks from which the Lebanese army’s trucks fill up on water every day to take it to the army barracks”.

The second was to “carry out a mass poisoning in a foreign country” through “poisoning food during a public holiday”, the statement said, without specifying the location.

The Palestinian has been referred to the relevant judicial authority, the security forces said, and the authorities are looking for other people involved.
