Lebanon Breaks Up Alleged Israeli Spy Ring

Last week, Lebanon’s military intelligence agency reported the arrest of a Palestinian man, purportedly a spy recruited by Israel. Sources say that the suspect was recruited by Mossad to gather information on terror groups and Lebanese Army movements. Allegedly, he was also told to search for details about Ron Arad, an Israeli Air Force navigator. Arad disappeared in 1986 after being forced to eject from his fighter plane somewhere in Lebanese air space. He is presumed dead, though there have been conflicting reports about the true nature of his fate.

The arrested Palestinian was a resident of the Bourj A-Shimali refugee camp in southern Lebanon. He has supposedly been supplying Israel with information for the past five years. Officials who raided his home reported finding advanced communications and spy equipment, used for gathering information and sending it to Israeli forces.

A Lebanese newspaper also reported the arrest of three other suspected spies, all allegedly part of a spy ring in collaboration with Israel. There are no current details on their arrests, so be sure to keep an eye out for an update!
