Hizbullah arrested three people over suspicions of running a spy
network for Israel and the United States, sources told Al Arabiya on
The three suspects, identified as Mohammed al-Husseini, Jihad Jaloul
and Mohammed al-Sabaa, were nabbed in a suburb in southern Beirut,
the sources said. The three agents have reportedly been active among
Hizbullah members and provided both the Mossad and the CIA with
information about terrorist group.
A report by the Lebanese daily An-Nahar said that the three spies
were not members of Hizbullah but had good relations with members of
In June of last year, Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah boasted
that the party had identified at least two spies working for the CIA
had infiltrated the group. He proceeded to dub the U.S. Embassy in
Lebanon a “den of spies,” The Beirut Daily Star noted.
According to the report An-Nahar, the most ‘dangerous’ of the spies,
a Lebanese man who was allegedly working for a Western intelligence
agency, was tasked with returning to Lebanon and monitoring the
movements of a Hizbullah official with whom he was friends.
The Hizbullah official, the report states, lives in Burj al-Barajneh
near the residence of the alleged spy and is thought to have been
involved in 1980s-era Beirut operations “that targeted the interests
of big countries.”
Information An-Nahar claims to have obtained indicates that the spy’s
ultimate mission was to lure the Hizbullah official to a place where
Western intelligence agents would arrest him.
The nature of the mission delegated to the other two members of the
alleged spy cell is currently unknown, the paper said.
