The Lebanese Internal Security Forces (ISF) have announced that a strike-force from the Information Branch has apprehended the “main member” of the group responsible for the twin-bombings of Burj Barajneh, according to the National News Agency (NNA) of Lebanon.
The culprit, Kh.Z., known as “Abu Talha” was reportedly described as a Lebanese national in 1986.
He was captured in a building in the Qubba region of Tripoli.
The terrorist group he belonged to also attempted to carry out attacks in the Burj Barajneh suburb of Beirut.
Investigations were underway with specialized judicial authorities.
On November 12, two suicide blasts rocked the area of Burj al-Barajneh in Beirut’s Southern Suburb (Dahiyeh), leaving over 43 dead and 211 injured.
The Lebanese security forces carried out a large scale crackdown in which it arrested almost all the terrorists who planned the blasts and assisted the suicide bombers.
In Homs countryside, Hezbollah also had managed in late November to kill Abdussalam Abdurrazzaq al-Hindawi, a key ISIL member involved in the terrorist bombings.
