Syrian arrested in Lebanon for collaborating with Israel
A Syrian man was arrested by the Lebanese Internal Security Forces on Wednesday after it was discovered he was collaborating with Israel in northern Lebanon.
“On December 13, 2017, in Al-Beddawi in North Lebanon, a force from the Northern Investigation Unit arrested a Syrian person (born in 1996) sought after under an arrest warrant for the crime of collaborating with the Israeli enemy,” the Internal Security Forces Directorate stated in a communique.
“The apprehended man has been handed over to the competent judiciary,” the communique concluded.
The Lebanese security forces recently launched a nationwide campaign to crackdown on citizens and foreign nationals collaborating with Israel; this latest arrest comes just weeks after actor Ziad Itani was apprehended for similar charges.
