Elusive wanted man arrested in Baalbek
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army said Saturday that it arrested one of the most notorious wanted men in the eastern town of Baalbek after thorough investigation and surveillance. 

Ali Ahmad Jaafar is wanted on several arrest warrants for his alleged involvement in the abduction of four people, including a Syrian man and the son of a prominent Lebanese businessman, the Army said in a statement. 

The man is also accused of arms and drug trading, as well as forming a gang to kidnap people at gunpoint. 

The military said that soldiers exchanged fire with two vehicles as the Army Intelligence unit made its way to Jaafar’s location in Ras al-Ain. 

Jaafar had several weapons and hand grenades in his possession at the time of his arrest.
