In a day of dramatic developments Wednesday, the Lebanese Army enjoyed a major breakthrough in its battle against national terror, arresting a leading figure of an Al-Qaeda-linked group, dismantling two explosive-laden cars and raiding a major arms cache.The string of security breakthroughs came after the arrest early Wednesday in Beirut of Palestinian Naim Abbas, who the Army said was a member of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades.Mohammad Mahmoud, who was in the same apartment as Abbas, was also arrested by the Army, according to a security source.Three individuals the Army found in the warehouse of the building where Abbas lived were also arrested, the sources added.The source said the arrest would likely help security agencies curb future bomb attacks and may help identify the suicide car bombers involved in the Jan. 2 and Jan. 16 attacks in the Beirut southern suburb of Haret Hreik and the Bekaa Valley town of Hermel.The Kia had come from Yabroud in Syria and was destined for Beirut, the Army said, adding that the three women intended to transfer the car to suicide bombers.
