HERMEL: Army Intelligence detained Sunday a terror suspect in the eastern region of al-Qaa, a security source told The Daily Star.

The man, identified as Qassem Atrash, is suspected of involvement in terrorist acts including arms transport and smuggling, the source said.

Local media reported that Atrash is the uncle of Omar Atrash, who was killed in October after a rocket hit his vehicle somewhere in the narrow valley that separates the mountainous area of Arsal and Syria.

Omar Atrash is also the cousin of Sunni Sheikh Omar Atrash who was charged in connection with separate car bombings in the Beirut southern suburb of Haret Heik in January.
