Army raids alleged terrorist leader’s Sidon residence
04 August 2012
SIDON: The Lebanese Army raided an apartment Friday in the southern city of Sidon belonging to the head of an alleged terrorist group whose members were arrested last week in Rmeileh, Mount Lebanon.
Army personnel targeted the apartment of Alaa al-Jabiri, a Palestinian living in Lebanon, and seized a computer and seven cellphone SIM cards. In a raid on a private residence in Rmeileh last week, the Army arrested three suspected terrorists, including Jabiri.
Last week’s raid netted a stash of weapons, including over 1,200 fuses, Israeli-made land mine fuses, Russian and U.S.-made anti-personnel mines, Israeli-made mortar bombs and 21 grenades. The haul also included 47 blocks of explosives – some weighing up to 500 grams – and assorted firearms.
Occupants of the building, located in the heavily populated neighborhood of Al-Wasaa, told The Daily Star Friday that Jabiri was not a religious person and that he had several tattoos.© Copyright The Daily Star 2012.
