Lebanese Army colonel ‘spied’ for Israel

May 26th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Lebanon

A Lebanese Army colonel has been arrested, accused of being part of Israel’s spy ring.

He is the highest-ranking official to be accused of working for the enemy. The unnamed man was arrested last week, and is part of a group of 30 caught so far.

21 have been charged, and some have confessed. 2 fled to Israel, and Lebanon has asked UNIFIL to demand they are handed over.

If convicted of being responsible for the deaths of Lebanese citizens, they face the death penalty.

    “the enemy”? You’re Syrian, not Lebanese, yes? What makes you think you can speak for the Lebanese?

    Lebanon is at war with Israel. That makes Israel the “enemy”.

    Fact, not subjective my friend!

    Don’t you love it when you get to see divide and conquer being attempted at such a crass level?
