Detainee Confesses to Hiding Explosives in his Land in Fnaideq

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A detainee confessed on Thursday to storing a number of explosives and weapons in property he owns in the northern region of Akkar, announced the Army Command in a statement on Friday.

It said that Mahmoud Khaled revealed that he hid explosives and weapons buried in the ground of the property in the town of Fnaideq.

The army consequently raided the area on Thursday where it discovered a number of explosives, mortar shells, and ammunition.

It also seized a large quantity of metal balls that are used in preparing explosive belts.

Also Thursday, the army raided another residence in Fnaideq where it seized 42 dynamite sticks, 34 120-millimeter and 80-millimeter mortar shells, 14 propellant charges for the mortar shells, and 36 stun grenades.

The army searched for the owner of the residence, Alaeddine Mohammed Kanaan, without finding him.

Thursday's raids come amid recent security developments in different regions in Lebanon.

On Wednesday, a Saudi man blew himself up at the Hotel Duroy in the Beirut neighborhood of Raouche as security forces stormed his room, killing himself and wounding several others.

The security raid followed the arrest last Friday in a hotel in the nearby Hamra district of the capital of a Frenchman of Comoran origin on suspicion of plotting to carry out suicide bombings in Lebanon on behalf of the ISIL.

On Monday, a suicide bomber blew up a vehicle near an army checkpoint and a cafe just after midnight in the Tayyouneh area on Dahieh's peripheries. The bombing killed one person and wounded 20.

Another bombing in eastern Lebanon last week killed a police officer and wounded several others.

I'm proud of our armed forces really,
But can someone answer how come after 13 assassination assassination attempts, tripoli bombing caught on video, hashem salman assassinated in daylight, and yet nothing?...
Well the army isnot to blame, the army is doing its job when asked to, so the thing iswhen matter targets march 14 or any anti syrian regime political force...
And last, hezbos really thing they can go to syria, defend el assad wich is hated by at least half of the lebanese and a very large majority of syrian (yes i know he got over 80 %of votes and more that 11milions voter, bravo) and they do wejeb al jihadi and expect no retaliation at all...
Hezbollah brought us deep in this shit, like 2006 war, and yet it's acting as it had all lebanese support over its actions...
And worse u hv supporters coming giving us lessons about patriotism, democracy...,and wondering why people hates hezbos more and more..
For all of u march 8 fellows, chupachups..

This is not our armed forces, this is Hezbollah controlled security apparatuses which are magically efficient when it doesn't involved finding Hezbollah assassins and murderers.

They solve crimes before they even happen !

Cedre we've been posting for some times yet on this forum, can u please talk abou hezbollah milicia instead of chia (even if hezbollah is a purely shiite millicia in the orders of iran) i this that el assaad ,sayed el amin.. And other shia are even more hurt by hezbos than us, we at least can burry our martyrs in official funeral hachem salman, killed in day light in front of our armed forces couldn't for exemple..
And again this is no resistance, this is a sectarian milicia, like sunit da3ech, like the christian hawach in central africa...
The lebanese people which supported israley invasions, syrian egemony, which protected their compatriots and accepted them in their homes in 2006, those are the real resistance...
Anyway cedre have a nice weekend
