Issa is also the nephew of Popular Nasserite Organization member Nassif Issa.Faith in the committee and the elite force was restored after the head of the elite force Maj. Gen. Munir Maqdah decided to arrest and charge two arms dealers Khaled Kaawash, a Palestinian national, and Rabih Serhal, a Syrian, who are suspected of committing the murder. Maqdah said Monday that the investigation was still ongoing and that the Lebanese Army was also involved. The source said that Issa was about to complete a deal to buy arms from Kaawash, who is known by his nom du guerre Janta, and his partner Serhal.It is believed that the Shaabi brothers were monitoring Issa.Surveillance footage shows Kaawash sitting in the front seat of Issa's car, which was driven by Serhal, with Issa seated in the back.Maqdah later identified Kaawash and Serhal as leads and called on the elite force to arrest the men.Issa's death is the latest security scare in the camp involving individuals linked to the Hezbollah-linked Resistance Brigades. Three individuals tied to the brigades went missing and were found dead in the camp earlier this year, the source said.
