The rescue teams faced difficulties when searching for the bodies due to the rainy weather, which caused delay in the search operations for a while before the Lebanese authorities found them.
Annahar Lebanese newspaper reported that the ages of the murdered girls ranged between 16-22 years.
The paper added that the main suspect in the case confessed that he kidnapped the mother and her daughters with the help of another fugitive.
He added that he and the fugitive took the four women to a cave near the town, where they killed them.
