Security Agencies Bust Three Cells Planning Suicide Attacks


Security agencies have busted three suicide rings that allegedly have no direct links to the recent bombings that targeted a police checkpoint and the entrance Beirut's southern suburbs.

A security source told al-Mustaqbal newspaper published on Sunday that the Army Intelligence is questioning the first network, the General Security Directorate the second and the Internal Security Forces Intelligence Branch the third ring.

The source said that one of the suspects detained in the northern Akkar region of Fnaideq, who is identified as Abou Oubaida al-Asli, is managing the three suicide rings.

The army announced on Saturday that detainees apprehended during raids in Fnaideq over the past week confessed to the existence of a cave in the region where they used to prepare explosives.

The confessions were made by Alaa Kanaan and Mahmoud Khaled, members of a terrorist bombing who were recently arrested.

Also Thursday, the army raided another residence in Fnaideq, seizing a large cache of arms and military equipment.

On Wednesday, a Saudi suicide-bomber blew himself up at the Duroy Hotel when he detonated his explosives during a security raid. His accomplice, also a Saudi citizen, survived the blast and is being questioned at hospital.

Security forces began recently enforcing strict measures and carrying out raids in several areas after obtaining information on a plot to target hospitals and high-ranking security officials.

Early Tuesday a suicide blast at the entrance of Beirut's southern suburbs, Hizbullah's main bastion, killed a security officer and wounded 20 others.

The bombing in Tayyouneh came three days after a suicide attack in eastern Lebanon that killed one person and wounded 30.

This is good news. God bless the brave sons of lebanon who protect us and risk their own lives in doing so.

To everyone claiming they only target Sunnis and not Shias, I say to you Do not undermine our army's work but embrace and support them. Terrorism has no sect or religion. If in fact you are referring to HA and their illegal arms then be patient, this is indeed a much bigger problem that can only be tackled once all the rouge elements are arrested then through diplomatic means and only diplomatic means will HA be pressured into conforming with the rest of society. I for one do not want to live through another Lebanese war hence we must be patient on this issue. LAF w Bass.

For twenty-seven years, the Syrian Regime has played the role of both arsonist and firefighter. Syria starts fires in order to give itself a pretext to extinguish them and thus justify its continuing occupation of Lebanon. And any Lebanese who dares to expose or resist Syria's hegemony is simply eliminated. Michel Aoun September 18/2003
