“Four people arrested in Shekka”
On January 5, Al Liwa, a Lebanese pro-government daily, reported that: “Concerned sources revealed to Al Liwa that the security bodies arrested in the last few days four people in the town of Shekka [North Lebanon] and they are Z.B Al-Kareh… who has different partisan and political loyalties, D. Harb from the Maronite town of Nahleh in the center of Batroun and who belongs to a non-Christian party organization, M. Al-Jammal, a Syria married to a Lebanese and who is known for his relation with a security official in a local organization, and M. Al-Hajj Hussein who is known for belonging to party from outside the area.
“The sources indicated that the four men are not from the town of Shekka but moved there long ago in search for jobs. The sources pointed out that there was no clear link yet between the four arrestees and those who were arrested from the Syrian Social Nationalist party, and indicated there was a complete security blackout regarding the nature of the investigations with them. They also revealed that the security bodies confiscated 120 kilograms of TNT placed in a small tunnel beneath a restaurant in the Koura area, in which the Lebanese Forces in Dunniyeh hosted a dinner about a month ago in the presence top LF officials.” - Newspaper - Middle East, Middle East
