Lebanese Army raids residence of alleged terrorist leader
A+ A-

Sidon, south Lebanon: The Lebanese Army raided an apartment Friday in the southern city of Sidon belonging to the head of an alleged terrorist group whose members were arrested last week in Rmeileh, Mount Lebanon.

Army personnel targeted the apartment of Alaa al-Jabiri, a Palestinian residing in Lebanon, and seized a computer as well as seven cell phone lines. During a raid on a private residence in Rmeileh last week, the Army arrested three suspected terrorists, including Jabiri.

Last week's raid also netted a stash of weapons, including over 1,200 fuses, Israeli-made landmine fuses, Russian and U.S.-made anti-personal mines, Israeli-made mortar bombs and 21 grenades. The haul additionally included 47 blocks of explosives -- some weighing up to 500 grams -- and assorted firearms.

During interrogation following his arrest, Jabiri told the military of his residence in Sidon.

Occupants of the building, located in the heavily populated neighborhood of Al-Wasaa, told The Daily Star Friday that Jabiri was not a religious person and that he had several tattoos.
