The sources added that within the spy networks arrested during the last month, there were more than evident that lead to Homsy’s involvement.
Meanwhile, informed political sources stressed that official connection took place with some high-level parties’ sides including the head of the Future Movement MP Saad Hariri to inform them of the reasons and information that led to the arrest of Homsy and advised them to call on their supporters to withdraw from the highway after they have blocked it in protest of the arrest. The sources confirmed that the case was linked to sensitive security issues, noting that other arrests have taken place in other regions, however they were not faced with such reactions. In contrary, the sources continued, the residents of those areas have shown full support for the Lebanese army since it is practicing its duty in protecting the country’s security.
Earlier, Saadnayel residents had blocked the highway linking Zahle with Beirut following protests against the army breaking into Homsy’s residence but the situation was back to normal as the residents have understood the reasons behind the arrest of al Homsy.
