Israeli Spy Suspect Arrested in Beirut

A Lebanese citizen was arrested on charges of cooperation with the Mossad, Israel's spy agency, Lebanon's police said, IRNA reported on Tuesday.

Sources added that Lebanese security forces raided yesterday the collaborator’s house, who previously worked for a security company in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.

The sources declined to give any further information about the ongoing investigations for reasons of secrecy and others related to the probability of having partners in his operational work.

Lebanon has recently stepped up efforts to disband spy groups working for the Mossad.

More than 100 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for Mossad since April 2009, including members of the country's security forces and telecommunications personnel.
