BEIRUT: General Security has arrested a Palestinian man suspected of involvement in last November's attack on the Iranian Embassy in Beirut, a security source told The Daily Star Tuesday.
General Security handed the man, identified as Y.M., to the military prosecutor’s office after an investigation revealed he had played a role in the twin suicide attack on the embassy, the source said.
The Nov. 19 twin attacks against the Iranian Embassy killed 30 people, including an Iranian diplomat. The Al-Qaeda-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the deadly blasts.
The Lebanese Army last month apprehended the head of the group, Majid al-Majid, who later died of natural causes at the military hospital.
