Army Arrests 4 at Eid's Akkar Home, ex-MP Whereabouts Still Unknown

The army raided on Tuesday the house of Arab Democratic Party leader Ali Eid in the northern region of Akkar, as troops began implementing a security plan adopted by the cabinet in several areas in the North.

"An army force raided the house of former MP Eid in the border town of Hikr al-Daheri,” the state-run National News Agency reported

The NNA said four people were arrested at Eid's residence, while the latter “was not found.”

Media reports on Saturday said Ali Eid left Lebanon to Syria, accompanied by his son, the party's politburo chief Rifaat Eid.

State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr last week ordered convicting 21 people in the case of the double blast that targeted two mosques in the northern city of Tripoli last summer.

Among the suspects were Ali Eid and the head of the pro-Syria Islamic Tawhid Movement-Command Council, Sheikh Hashem Minkara.

And on February 24, First Military Investigative Judge Riyad Abou Ghida issued an arrest warrant in absentia for Ali Eid.

The warrant was based on the content of the lawsuit that was filed against him by the military prosecution in connection with the alleged smuggling of suspects wanted over Tripoli's twin bombings.

On August 23, 2013, two car bombs exploded outside the al-Taqwa and al-Salam mosques in Tripoli, leaving 45 people dead and more than 800 injured according to an unofficial toll.

And they tell me Hezbollah is not a terrorist organisation. They are at least guilty of siding with terrorists and fighting with them. If they are not terrorists, they are pro-terrorism !

And the al nusra and Isis, who have openly admitted they are responsible for suicide bombings that have killed dozens of Lebanese innocent civilians? Are they not terrorists? Eid is now a fugitive from the LAF. If he did what he is accused of then he must answer. All terror and acts of treason are rejected. Careful LAF, the "m8" supporters might claim the LAF are pro Sunni and ksa:)

@Ado : No one here is saying Nusra n co aren't terrorist. No one is defending them. Find me one single person on this forum who actually does.

This said, Hezbollah remains a terrorist organisation just like Isil, Nusra and whatever new name you can come up with.

And LAF is plagued by Hezbollah. LAF Moukhabarat is under the control of Hezbollah doing dirty work just as those who accuse Rifi of doing with the ISF Information Bureau...

ok. now this thug is out. Can the sunnis calm down and quit the unrest?

Thumb lebanon_first 01 April 2014, 19:57

no. justice will be served when the HA milicia gets disarmed. But it would be good to spend a summer without unrest.

Did the Salafists kill soldiers even before HA shot down the Helicopter killing Samer Hanna? Remind me of the chronology of events please.
My point of view is: The LAF have many enemies within the borders (Salafists, HA, Palestinians, SSNP, Tawhids, .... shee tiktik shess te3a).
