The Lebanese army said Wednesday it has seized weapons, ammunition and drugs from a building in a town in the north Metn area and arrested more than 12 suspects.

An army communique said the raid took place in Sabtieh on Tuesday night after the military received a tip-off about the suspicious activities carried out there.

The army unit arrested 14 suspects, including 6 Syrians.

It seized drugs, weapons, ammunition, hand grenades in addition to cash, military gear, communications equipment and fake IDs from the suspects, the communique said.

The detainees and the confiscated material were handed over to the appropriate authorities, it added.

The state-run National News Agency said the raid targeted the house of Ali Monzer Zoaiter in the area of Fanar. The army arrested his brother Mohammed who has several warrants issued against him.

Ali, who is one of the most wanted fugitives in the country, is a top drug trafficker.

The military also apprehended 14 others, NNA said.

"The army unit arrested 14 suspects, including 6 Syrians."

Typical, filthy, FSA-Al Qaeda jihadist terrorists.

Thanks for reminding us that Syrian people are Hizbullah's enemy, not their friend

Sabtieh is one of the many Christian towns where hezballah's settlers live

I didnt report it, i was glad to see you expose yourself as a sectarian hater. The mods did you a favor by removing an embarrassing comment, you should thank them.

And as FT said, "israel" is not a sect, it's a country with which we are at war and that you keep defending, thinking people wont see clearly in your little game. Yes, without a doubt, you are an israeli.

If the Syrians can divide us so much, and to think that they are now almost 50% of our population, then how much room for comfort will that leave in our minds and hearts? Think of it.
