Local sources told The Daily Star that Hujeiri was sleeping in his house when arrested.The security source added that a lot of important information regarding Hujeiri's activities came from Abada.Following the Army's operation to drive Daesh (ISIS) out of border areas near Ras Baalbeck and Al-Qaa as well as Hezbollah's successful operation near Arsal to remove Jabhat Fatah al-Sham over the summer, authorities vowed to crack down on those linked to the incidents of 2014 that saw Arsal briefly overrun by militants.
