The Agricultural Police on Saturday arrested ten people for allegedly encroaching a forest land located in Qasr Khayar, 80 km east of the capital Tripoli.

The Public Prosecutor's Office confirmed that it ordered the concerned authorities to arrest the perpetrators and seize their machines and vehicles.

The Agricultural Police clarified on its Facebook page that the operation was carried out in cooperation with Interior Ministry since the joint security room between the agencies was unified a long time ago.
