Man suspected of spying for Israel arrested in Lebanon

March 28 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Lebanese Army late Monday arrested a man in the town of Dohat Aramun, located on the outskirts of the capital, Beirut, allegedly spying for Israel, amid tensions between the two countries.

Security sources cited by the Lebanese newspaper ‘L’Orient le Jour’ have indicated that the arrest took place in the framework of a joint operation near a location used by the Resistance Brigades, a militia linked to Hezbollah.

Thus, they have highlighted that during the raid a laptop computer and other communication materials were seized, without further details having been released for the moment and without the party-militia having ruled on the matter. The detainee would have Lebanese nationality.

Israel and Lebanon are technically at war and do not maintain diplomatic relations, although last year they reached an agreement to delimit their maritime border, a matter of special importance after the discovery of gas reserves in this area that both Israel and Lebanon hope be able to explode
