A Tripoli resident who operated several social media accounts promoting the activities of ISIS militants was arrested by the Lebanese Army Saturday.After monitoring the suspect's activity across social media platforms like Twitter and Youtube, the Army traced his location to the the Qibbeh neighborhood in Tripoili. The suspect, who was identified by his nom du guerre "Abu al-Hour al-Shami," is a Tripoli resident who is suspected of posting messages and videos promoting the activities of ISIS militants, who have killed thousands of people in Iraq and Syria. The suspect also has strong ties to two brothers from Tripoli who are currently fighting alongside the jihadi group.It remains unclear whether he was tasked to operate the media network by ISIS or if he did so voluntarily.
