Lebanon’s resistance movement of Hezb Allah has arrested a Lebanese national in the city of Baalbek on charges of cooperating with Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency.
The arrested Lebanese national currently resides in Hezb Allah’s security compound in the city, a Lebanese TV channel reported on Wednesday.
More than 100 people have been arrested in Lebanon on suspicion of collaborating with Mossad since April 2009, including members of the security forces and telecommunications employees.
Tel Aviv has launched an intelligence war against Hezb Allah following its defeat during the 33-day war against the Lebanese resistance movement in 2006.
In late January, a top military court in Lebanon charged a Lebanese national with collaborating with the Israeli spying agency and passing information on the whereabouts of the Hezb Allah leader.
The man identified by Lebanese media as Talal Khalil reportedly disclosed information to Israel about security bases belonging to the Hezb Allah resistance movement.
Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency said the accused had been in contact with Israel since 2001 and could face a death sentence.
