ISF Seizes Weapons in Tripoli Warehouse

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Internal Security Forces Intelligence Bureau raided on Monday a warehouse in the northern city of Tripoli, confiscating a number of weapons, reported the National News Agency.

It said that an ISF Intelligence Bureau patrol raided the warehouse, belonging to A.N., in the al-Soweiqa al-Mahatra neighborhood, seizing a number of rocket-propelled grenades, Energa-type rockets, bombs, and light and medium weapons.

Last month, the army deployed heavily in Tripoli and started implementing a major security plan devised by the government to end violence in the city.

Tripoli witnessed around 20 rounds of deadly gunbattles in recent years between the rival neighborhoods of Bab al-Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen.

The security plan has resulted in the arrest of dozens of gunmen and fugitives in Tripoli and the Bekaa but a lot of wanted men have managed to escape, while others remain at large.

Last week, a number of leaders of armed fighters in Tripoli turned themselves over to the military intelligence.

see what i mean? -...flamethrower...- is here all day every day, posting absolutely nothing of substance. no opinions, no arguments, no factual input, nothing. only disruption attempts. how could he possibly be a genuine reader? 
he's probably the least dangerous (because he's so obvious and shallow) but there are many others who are certainly way above his pay grade.

Notwithstanding, here you go:

I await the day when I will read ONE meaningful post, ONE counter argument, ONE credible or mature info from you, -...flamethrower...- , but alas!

everybody knows very well how implicated mustaqbal, saudi, mikati etc… in the fighting in Tripoli. It was a standoff against pro syrians militias (including the terrorist party) that was backed and financed by sunni political figures and pro sunni countries sending a strong message to pro syrian to stop their vexation against the sunnis in lebanon.
it ended by a political deal with hizbollah and its saraya el moqawama pulling out of tripoli and saida.

It is to be noted that it is the very first time that sunni takes arms since the beginning of the civil war in 1975, except for the dozen of mourabitoun that used to show off in mazraa and aicha baker.

contrary to what happened in Tripoli, Assir did not have the backing of neither Hariri nor the sunnis in Lebanon.

This is all they got from the "Warehouse" - I didn't know you need that much space to store 5 rifles and 70 rounds :)

hardly qualifies for a hunting trip when one of your terrorists get caught.
