State Security Arrests Syrian Suspects Spying on Armed Forces
Lebanon's State Security apparatus arrested two Syrian nationals on suspicion of spying on the country's army forces, the State-run National News Agency reported on Friday.
A State Security patrol in al-Nabatieh arrested Mohammed Aa. and Hussein S., both Syrians, against the backdrop of spying on the Lebanese army, NNA said.
Several videos filmed with the suspects' mobiles showed footage of roads surrounding the Defense Ministry, the Fouad Shehab Command and Staff College (CSC), the Intelligence building Mount Lebanon branch, the Military Academy, the Officers' Residence in Hazmieh, and the areas surrounding the buildings in that neighborhood.
The suspects were referred to the military court upon the request of the Government Commissioner, added NNA.
