Army: Intelligence foiled suicidal scheme to be executed following Jabal Mohsen attack

JANUARY 15, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) The army’s Intelligence Department managed to foil a scheme to execute a series of suicidal attacks after Jabal Mohsen twin bombing, a communiqué by the army’s guidance directorate indicated on Thursday.

Within this context, the army arrested Hossam al-Naboush and Elie Toni al-Warraq, as well as Syria Muhannad Ali Mohammad Abdul Qader; they were preparing for terrorist operations against army outposts and residential areas.

The three held falsified Palestinian and Syrian IDs.

Investigations showed that they belonged to the group of wanted Shadi Mawlawi and Ousama Mansour. They have also announced their affiliation with terrorist organizations and were involved in the battles in Syria and in the attacks on the army as well as in the clashes between Jabal Mohsen and Bab-al-Tabbaneh.
