W300

An Internal Security Forces patrol foiled a terror attack by an Islamic State group affiliate that planned to target the Grand al-Mansouri mosque in the northern city of Tripoli, media reports said.

A communique by the ISF Directorate General said it foiled the attack on 7/8/2017 at 16.45 pm and that the suicide attacker had planned to execute his mission during the afternoon prayers.

In details, ISF police apprehended a Lebanese national who was identified by the initials R.K, (born in 2003), as he was trying to enter the mosque. After searching him, two hand grenades were found inside his bag.

The detainee was referred to the Information branch for interrogation, and he admitted his affiliation to the terrorist IS organization.

He confessed he was planning to enter the Grand Mansouri Mosque during the afternoon prayers and toss the two hand grenades at worshippers. He also planned to snatch a gun from one of the police on guard and open fire at worshippers.

Investigation is underway under the supervision of the concerned judiciary.

Sure it's an ISIS plot and the Samaha-Mamlouk bombs were AlQaeda plots. When the two Tripoli mosques were bombed in August 2013, Hezballah and allies claimed that these and the Dahieh bombings were "part of a criminal scheme, by regional parties, aiming to sow strife among the Lebanese and drag them into a sectarian civil strife". Speaking of which has anybody seen Bashar's lap dog Rifaat Eid?
