إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Lebanese army intelligence thwarted recently a terrorist plot set to target one of the military posts in Beirut, reported Ad Diyar newspaper on Tuesday.

According to the newspaper, the army detained a “dangerous cell” that infiltrated its ranks and plotted to target its posts in Beirut's Karantina area.

The Army revealed in May that it has broken up a cell, detained its members and confiscated a quantity of detonators and explosives.

Media reports said that the network was plotting to assassinate a list of Lebanese politicians and security chiefs to create chaos in the country.

In March last year, the army arrested a takfiri network that was planning to carry out terrorist attacks on the military school in al-Fayyadiyeh and the army barracks in Hamat.

Media reports then described the cell as takfiri with links to the Abdullah Azzam Brigades.

With all its impotence in the face of HA and Salafists, the army institution is still the only thread left for the salvation of Lebanon. May God protect you and strengthen you so Lebanon can become a wholesome nation for all its law abiding citizens.

Unfortunately the Army only can bust and in a limited way bastions and arms in north lebanon , 'they r sunnis not armed and trained like hizbelzbele' and so they are all called terrorists, on the other hand u have the army of hizbelchaytan and the bastion on dahie, this is the terror and the terrorists, they shoot samer hanna and try to assasinate butros harb under the flag of fighting israel, so in the south they are ashraf el nass and in the north they are terrorists... my humble advice is that they r both terrorists.

God bless the Lebanese army for protecting Lebanon from the FSA-Al Qaeda terrorists and against Saudi-Wahabi terrorist hegemony.
