The Internal Security Forces announced Monday the arrest of a gang that robbed dozens of restaurants and supermarkets over the past five months.

“Following intensive investigations and surveillance, a patrol from the Mount Lebanon investigations department chased several suspects at dawn today on the highway between Dbaye and Nahr el-Mot,” an ISF statement said.

An exchange of gunfire ensued, which resulted in the injury of two policemen and one of the suspects and the arrest of three other suspects – two Lebanese and a Palestinian, the statement added.

It said the gang had targeted areas such as Dbaye, Bsalim, Jounieh and Amchit, identifying some of the robbed businesses as Black Rock, Couqley, Ichiban, Tabliyit Massaad, Babel, al-Baba Sweets, Ghosn Supermarket, al-Yamama Supermarket, Starford, McDonald's Amchit, Doueihi Sweets Jounieh, Central Park, Sushiholic, Peninsula and Baz Supermarket.

The ISF said the gang had also robbed the Chez Paul restaurant in Gemmayze overnight Sunday.

In addition to cash, “the gang was keen on stealing the DVR devices which store the CCTV footage, although its members were masked all the time,” the ISF noted.

On Thursday, state-run National News Agency said masked gunmen robbed a McDonald's branch in Amchit of 22 million Lebanese pounds and a DVR device.

I disowned him a longtime ago. He was always a problem child. We tried our best to raise him up as a Lebanese but he always aspired to be Iranian. I recall when he was a baby…. his first words out of his mouth were not Mama or Baba or Ughha …… but Aya-tollah ! He would wake up in the middle of the night and ask his mother when the Ayatollah would come take him to Qom. In the end, we surrendered to God’s will and accepted things as they were. Child psychologists informed us he will grow up to be the most sectarian creature. Well, it seems they were right.

I respect Mr. mowaten, Mr. Jalal.Al.Hussaini, and Mr. Hisham.Al.Hussaini equally for their transparency and total commitment to the truth.

Hello friends, does anyone know what happened to the thug Hussein Hussein who was hired by Hizbolla to operate the account of لواء أحرار السنة - بعلبك on twitter? Will he get capital punishment? Thank you.

He is as free as the Free Sunni Brigades. He is fighting the taf-kiris in Zabadani.

is that what you consider a civilized political opinion, mowaten?

Default-user-icon cityboy (Guest) 15 September 2015, 15:15

you know what is strange mowaten.... I was thinking the same thing exactly, the same!!!! The similarities between us are not just coincidences anymore. I mean we are both shiaa extremists who pretend to be secular and we both are members of the shia resistance, both paid to post, both are sectarian to the bone, both troll and make up accounts to insult people and then pretend we are against such practices.... I hope just because we are similar in all the above ways people don't think we are the same poster.
