'Eagle of Arsal' Arrested for Setting Up Booby-Trapped Cars

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The army intelligence arrested on Saturday afternoon in the northeastern town of Arsal one of the main fugitives accused of setting up booby-trapped cars.

"Ahmed al-Atrash, nicknamed the 'Eagle of Arsal,' was arrested in the Bekaa town,” the state-run National News Agency reported.

The NNA added: “Al-Atrash is a dangerous fugitive accused of preparing bomb-laden cars.”

Later in the evening, the military institution confirmed in a communique the arrest of Ahmed Ahmed al-Atrash on charges of terrorism.

"Investigation kicked off in the arrest of al-Atrash under the supervision of the competent court," the statement added.

OTV noted that the man is the brother of “terrorist” Sami al-Atrash, and the cousin of detainee Omar al-Atrash.

Sami al-Atrash was killed in March during a military operation in Arsal. He had several terrorism charges against him, and was accused of killing soldiers and civilians in the region.

On Wednesday, the army also arrested eight “dangerous” fugitives, all Syrians, in the border town of Arsal.

The military institution confiscated a stolen car and weapons in the region as well.

The arrests come as security forces are implementing a security plan that was adopted by the cabinet to restore security and stability in the northern city of Tripoli and the Bekaa.

Just like you Bani Maarouf, you are an endengered specie, the more species you use on this forum, the more danger you run to your credibility as a poser, oops sorry, I meant to say as a poster.

no they didnt . thet were innocent civilans minding their own business.

stop twisting history : shoot on church, kill people, go in a bus in the same area where u did that, then blame others for reacting !

On the morning of 13 April 1975, unidentified gunmen in a speeding car fired on a church in the Christian East Beirut suburb of Ain el-Rummaneh, killing four people including two Maronite Phalangists. Hours later, Phalangists led by the Gemayels killed 30 Palestinians traveling in Ain el-Rummaneh. Citywide clashes erupted in response to this "Bus Massacre".

RW, you are so silly, can't you see that I am posting from a different time zone? Jeez, so childish you are, at least I've never used but one profile, yet you my dear fake friend, where are you, at your eleventh? You are fake mister, as fake as your imagination keeps betraying you, all I am kindly requesting of you, is to drop all your mulitple accounts, and use just one, just one! Is that hard dear friend? Must you always hate so much. One profile like most of us do, more than enough. I told you, it's nothing personal.

Geha, nothing amazing here. Have I ever tangled with you? How many times have I defended your views here, and why? But I am not here to praise sing for anyone, be it M8 or M14, I am here to air my views, period. You and everyone know well that Banni Maarouf is an impostor, readily using several profiles, as does the owner of RW, different accounts, same hatred, same narrow mindedness, all residing in their brains. I am doing all I could to help this forum remain clean, and look at how many insults keep raining on decent posters. Have you the courage to face them? So leave me to face them if you don't mind, blame me when you will see me being disrespectful. In the meantime, keep the peace.

Liberty, please read my replies to Bani Maarouf, owner of many fake accounts, to Roaring Wolf, another owner of many other fake accounts, and Geha, fortunately a guy decent and whom I respect. Is it unfair of me to say that enough is enough? How many times did we see good threads get derailed and sent down the drains? Why can't we simply debate, clean and neat without having to endure all the ridicule from such multiple users, all bent on hatred and down thumbing others and up thumbing themselves. What drives them nuts is the fact that they cannot anger me, no matter what cheap tricks they keep trying. I shall remain just as it is, till they decide to use one account each. The time zone I am in currently, allows me to be extravagant, two more days, and will be back home.

(1). Roaring Wolf, aren't you whom I know you are? Your poor brains, they are the ones you should blame. You home on my avatar, and you start getting lots of imagination, then bingo, I am the one you created in your mind. Am I whom you write here I am? Come now, get off it will you? Last year I tnagled with you when you used another profile, but you can't change can you? This forum is ours all to use, but the difference is between decent folks who have a lot to contribute, and contrites like you whose intolerance remains the one single obstruction to their being good contributors. Drop your silliness, drop your childish behavior, just debate in respectful ways and all will be fine.

(2), Roaring Wolf. Then don't mislead yourself with the many fake accounts you're running, one is more than enough. I so much wish that the mods delete all these multiples, then we shall see who is fake and who is not, you Sir remain fake, like it or not, you're fake with even more fake thinking. This is my wishing you well, despite all the sorry fake things you said of my, God bless you.

Excellent news! God bless the Lebanese Army! Torture and hang him!

Thumb liberty 13 April 2014, 04:21

I don't think anyone hates Lebanon or the LAF. It is just hypocritical when people like Karim and his others use the LAF in their sectarian arguments. You never see him and his likes praise the army when it catches one of their own. Have you ever seen him praise the LAF when it arrests criminals in Brital?

Thumb liberty 13 April 2014, 04:32

to prove my point, here is the article on the arrest of criminals in Bekaa, and Karim is nowhere to be seen. He uses the LAF when it suits his sectarian agenda!

those who hate the army are well known: hizbushaitan and their masters and supporters, as contrary to what they declare, a strong army means they finally do not exist.
I for one criticize the inaction of the army or its one sided actions: not catching all those protected by hizbushaitan as an example.
