Hezbollah, Lebanon army bust Qaeda-linked militants in Beirut

Politics - Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement and the country’s security forces have arrested members of an al-Qaeda-linked militant group in southern Beirut.

The militants belonging to the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) had infiltrated into the southern suburb of Dahiya under the guise of a business company.

Reports say the Saudi spy agency had purchased the business license to provide a cover for the secret ISIL agents.

The militants were operating in an area close to a Hezbollah stronghold.

Hezbollah forces had the group under surveillance for nearly one year and submitted the evidence to Lebanon’s army.

Lebanon has been embroiled in a string of deadly bomb attacks in recent months. Many view the violence as a spillover of the conflict in neighboring Syria.

Terrorist groups of the al-Nusra Front and the ISIL operating in Syria have claimed responsibility for a number of the bombings in Lebanon.
