Lebanese army seizes top al-Qaeda-linked militant

Published: 02.12.14, 15:53 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Lebanon's army on Wednesday arrested a senior al-Qaeda-linked militant described by security sources as a "mastermind of car bombs" that targeted Shi'ite areas of the country.

 

Security sources said the arrest of the "terrorist" Naim Abbas could help uncover radical jihadi cells in Lebanon, which have been ratcheting up attacks against the army and against the political and militant Shi'ite group Hezbollah.

 

Abbas, a Palestinian, was snatched from his house in a Beirut suburb in a special operation led by the Lebanese army early on Wednesday morning. (Reuters)
