BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army has arrested a suspect over last week’s roadside bombing and ambush that killed a Hezbollah member and wounded three others in the Bekaa Valley, the National News Agency said.

A Lebanese Army Intelligence unit arrested A. H., a Syrian from the city of Zabadani, during a raid on a house in the Bekaa Valley town of Majdal Anjar Monday night, the NNA reported.

Judicial sources could not confirm the arrest.

One Hezbollah member was killed and three others were wounded in the ambush last week that targeted a Hezbollah convoy on the highway linking the Bekaa Valley to Syria.

A roadside bomb exploded near two SUVs carrying Hezbollah members on the highway linking the town of Majdal Anjar to the Masnaa border crossing.

The vehicles were shot at following the explosion and several bullets hit the windshield of one of the SUVs, a GMC with tinted windows.

The ambush came a week after a bombing in the pro-Hezbollah Beirut southern suburb of Bir al-Abed that wounded over 50 people.

A number of attacks have targeted pro-Hezbollah areas in the country likely in retaliation for the party's intervention in Syria.
