Army Detains Suspect Linked to Abduction of Palestinian in Baalbek

The Lebanese army apprehended on Thursday a man over the abduction of a Palestinian national in the town Khreibe in the eastern city of Baalbek.

An army unit raided the town of Brital and detained a man identified as Aa. Q. T. on the suspicion of being linked to the abduction of Palestinian Mohammed Jaber, the state-run National News Agency reported.

Jaber was kidnapped on Tuesday in the Qob Elias town while he was inspecting a land in the town of Khreibe.

Speculations indicated that the abductors wanted to demand a ransom in exchange for Jaber's freedom.
