International and political news:

The Israeli Army denied that the Syrian air defenses destroyed an Israeli warplane in Syria.

Legal activist and Lebanese attorney Nabil al-Halabi said that the Lebanese Army's arrest campaigns against Syrian refugees in Lebanon "are politicized and systematic."

Al-Halabi, head of the Lebanese Institute for Democracy and Human Rights (LIFE), which takes care of the Syrian refugees' affairs in Lebanon, reported on Friday that the Lebanese security services work for the Lebanese Hezbollah militia. Al-Halabi said that the Lebanese security services launch arrest campaigns to "pressure the Syrian refugees to return to the areas of Western Homs, al-Qusayr, and al-Qalamun, and reconcile with the Iranian influence there."
