Report: Army Intelligence Arrests Officer at Military Academy

The Lebanese army intelligence detained a cadet officer in the military academy suspected of having links with a “terrorist” organization, al-Akhbar newspaper reported on Wednesday.

According to the daily, the network is located in the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp in the southern port city of Sidon.

Judicial sources told the newspaper that the cadet was expected to graduate in August 2013 but the intelligence bureau received information that he was recruited by a close member to the “Emir” of the “terrorist” group.

The sources described the matter as “precautionary,” pointing out that the ties between the officer and the organization were “still at the first stages and he wasn't assigned to do any operation yet.”

In March last year, the army intelligence exposed an extremist 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.
