|Dual Syrian-Australian arrested by Lebanese military intelligence||Lebanese Military Intelligence, Syrian Civilians/Refugees||
Lebanese security officials say a dual Syrian-Australian national has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism in Lebanon.
The officials say the man, identified as Mark Eddie Maximus, was arrested by military intelligence in the northern city of Tripoli over the weekend.
One official speaking to The Associated Press on Monday says authorities had been pursuing Maximus for a while on suspicion of funding a terrorist organisation.
He declined to elaborate and spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
A local newspaper said the man was suspected of ties to the Islamic State group.
The Lebanese army has been fighting the Islamic State group and al-Qaeda's Syrian branch, the Nusra Front, in border areas close to Syria.

|Tripoli sit-in against "social suffering"||Lebanese Civilians||
نظم "الحراك المدني" اعتصاما أمام مركز الضمان الاجتماعي في طرابلس تحت عنوان "العذاب الاجتماعي". إذ تجمع العشرات من المواطنين وأعضاء النقابات وفاعليات المجتمع المدني، ورفعوا شعارات منددة ب"الذل الذي يعانيه المواطن لدى تقديم أي معاملة ضمان"، وطالب المعتصمون ب"استقدام موظفين جدد لتغطية أعمال المواطنين وخدمتهم".
وأشار نقيب السائقين في الشمال شادي السيد إلى أن "سنوات عديدة واجتماعات متكررة مع المدير العام للضمان الاجتماعي الدكتور محمد كركي الذي منذ تسلمه المديرية العامة والضمان الاجتماعي يتراجع بشكل سريع، خصوصا مركز طرابلس الذي كان يعمل فيه 85 موظفا وبدأ يفرغ من موظفيه بسبب بلوغ السن القانونية ولا يتم تعيين بدائل لهم خلافا للمراكز التي تحظى برضى هذا المدير العام والتي تعود إلى منطقته حتى وصلت به الأمور إلى نقل معاملات مركز طرابلس إلى مركز النبطية".
ولفت النظر إلى أنه "في كل اجتماع كان المدير العام يؤكد أنه خلال بضعة أسابيع سيعين موظفين في طرابلس ويحضر الإعلام ويتصور كما لو أنه قام بإنجاز إنما تلك الوعود كانت تتبخر". وقال: "اجتمعنا بوزير العمل في موضوع مركز طرابلس والنتيجة لم تختلف عن وعود المدير العام الضمان. وبسبب هذا النقص الحاد بعدد الموظفين أخذ بعض المسؤولين في مركز طرابلس باستغلاله لمصالحهم الشخصية ومنافعهم المادية بحيث كان من يدفع يقبض بسرعة والآخرون ينتظرون سنوات لقبض معاملاتهم، إذا تكرم عليهم المسؤول. ثم إصدار بيانات عن وضع مركز طرابلس ثم إرسالها إلى وزير العمل وإلى مجلس إدارة الضمان وإلى المدير العام الذي أرسل التفتيش الإداري التابع له كالدمية وجاءت النتيجة عدم وجود ثغرات وبقي المسؤول في طرابلس في مركزه حتى آخر ساعة من بلوغه السن القانونية وبالتالي كان محميا من المدير العام".http://assafir.com/Article/8/449519

انشغلت طرابلس أمس بالمداهمات المتلاحقة التي نفذتها مديرية المخابرات في الجيش اللبناني وأدت الى توقيف 12 شخصا من الملتزمين دينيا، وذلك للاشتباه بانتمائهم الى مجموعات إرهابية، (بحسب بيان صدر عن قيادة الجيش ـ مديرية التوجيه بهذا الخصوص). تشير مصادر أمنية مطلعة لـ «السفير» الى أن كل الأجهزة في حالة استنفار كامل الى جانب الجيش اللبناني، في حين أن العيون الأمنية تراقب كل شاردة وواردة، وذلك في إطار الحرب الاستباقية والاحتياطية لأي تحرك يمكن أن يقوم به مشبوهون، مؤكدة أن المخاطر كبيرة في كل لبنان ولا يمكن التهاون مع أية معلومة يمكن أن ترد. وتقول هذه المصادر: إن الجهود التي تبذلها مخابرات الجيش مع الأجهزة الأمنية المعنية ساعدت خلال الفترة الماضية على تفكيك الكثير من الخلايا الارهابية التي كانت تستعد للاخلال بالأمن، إضافة الى قتل وتوقيف عدد كبير من مسؤولي ومشغلي هذه الخلايا وكان آخرهم أحمد كسحا الذي اعترف بما هو منسوب إليه من أعمال إرهابية وتقديم مساعدات لوجستية لارهابيين قبل توقيفهم وفي مقدمتهم الشيخ أحمد الأسير والشيخ خالد حبلص. وتشير معلومات أمنية إلى أن الموقوفين الـ 12 الذين ألقي القبض على 11 منهم دفعة واحدة خلال اجتماعهم في أحد المقاهي في محلة باب الرمل، ومن ثم تم توقيف شخص آخر بعد مداهمة منزله، صادرة بحقهم وثائق اتصال ومذكرات توقيف بناء على الاشتباه بقيامهم بإطلاق النار على الجيش، والتواصل مع مجموعات إرهابية، ومساعدة عدد من الفارين من وجه العدالة، لا سيما خلال معركة أسواق طرابلس، ونقل وحيازة أسلحة وإطلاق نار في اعتصامات مختلفة، فضلا عن التحريض على الجيش والترويج لتنظيمي «داعش» و «جبهة النصرة» على وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي. وتقول هذه المعلومات إن ثلاثة أو أربعة أشخاص من الموقوفين قد يواجهون تهما حقيقية في هذا الاطار، أما الباقون فان تهمهم لا تتعدى تواجدهم في بعض التحركات والمعارك التي جرت سابقا، لكن ما لفت نظر مديرية المخابرات هو اجتماعاتهم الدورية بشكل يومي في أحد المقاهي في محلة باب الرمل، في حين يؤكد عدد من أبناء المنطقة أن الشبان يجتمعون منذ أشهر شأنهم في ذلك شأن كل رواد المقاهي في المناطق الشعبية، وهم يحملون فكرا إسلاميا متشددا كغيرهم أيضا، وليس بالضرورة أن يكونوا يعدون لعمل أمني ما، أما بالنسبة لوثائق الاتصال فهي تطال الآلاف من الشبان، وقد تم الاعلان عن إلغائها من قبل الحكومة اللبنانية لكن لا يزال العمل جاريا فيها. وكانت قوة من مديرية مخابرات الجيش مدعومة بقوة كبيرة من الجيش اللبناني، طوقت محلة باب الرمل وأقفلت كل المنافذ والمخارج فيها، وداهمت أحد المقاهي الشعبية وأوقفت 11 شخصا هم: طلال م.، عبدالكريم م.، أدهم ش.، محمود ع.، واصف ع.، طارق م.، محمد د.، محمود ن.، عبد الرحمن ش.، وليد ح.، عبيدة ع. وبعد عملية التوقيف الجماعية، نفذ الجيش سلسلة مداهمات حيث أوقف لاحقا محمد ع.، وعثر في منزله على بندقية وذخائر، كما داهم الجيش كل منازل الموقوفين الموزعة بين باب الرمل والأسواق ومحرم وأبي سمراء، وصادر من بعضها أسحة فردية وذخائر. وتم نقل الموقوفين الى فرع مخابرات الجيش في القبة حيث بوشرت التحقيقات معهم، ومن المفترض بعد انتهائها أن يبنى على الشيء مقتضاه. http://assafir.com/Article/8/448256 The army command said in a communique that a military unit arrested in the Bab al-Ramel area of the northern city of Tripoli on Wednesday night 12 Lebanese on suspicion of belonging to terrorist groups. The suspects were referred to the appropriate authorities for further questioning. http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/190970-israeli-spy-device-found-in-ou...

|40 Palestinians arrested while attempting migration via Tripoli||Palestinian Civilians/Refugees, ISF(internal security forces), Syrian Civilians/Refugees||
The Internal Security Forces said Wednesday they have apprehended 44 people of different nationalities as they attempted to flee toward Germany from the northern port of Tripoli. The refugees included 12 Palestinian men displaced from Syria, 17 Palestinian men living in Lebanon, three Palestinian women from Lebanon, a Palestinian woman displaced from Syria, four Ethiopian women, a Bangladeshi, two Syrian men, and four Palestinian children, the ISF said in a statement. Security sources told The Daily Star that the Palestinian men displaced from Syria were originally from the Yarmouk camp next to Damascus, and claimed that most of them staunchly oppose the Syrian government. Most had settled in the refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh in Sidon after arriving in Lebanon. The refugees were on a bus when they were arrested, waiting for the owner of the vessel to help them aboard, the sources said. The ISF then arrived on the scene and arrested everyone, including the owner of the boat. Security sources claim that this was not a rare incident but was rather occurring on a semi-regular basis. “The only reason they announced today’s operation was because of the large number of refugees captured,” the source told The Daily Star. The source also claimed that such incidents are not exclusive to Tripoli. Smuggling operations also take place in the coastal towns of Chekka and Enfeh. Other refugees board boats posing as fisherman. After making their way out to sea they are met by smugglers with larger boats, aboard which they try to make their way to various European havens, the sources said. The ISF and General Security have recorded several cases of boats ferrying asylum-seekers from Tripoli’s fishing port over the past two months. The vessels used for the journey are often quite small, but carry up to a hundred passengers. Many Syrian and Palestinian refugees have fled to Turkey in hopes of crossing the Aegean Sea to Greece, using it as a portal to reach the rest of Europe and seek asylum. Between 2011 and 2015 some 428,735 refugees have applied for asylum in Europe. Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, has taken in the EU’s highest number of refugees amid the biggest migrant crisis since World War II. The total number is expected to reach 800,000 this year – four times last year’s total – at a cost of about 10 billion euros ($11 billion) to the German state.

|Syrians held hostage by Lebanese families escape||Syrian Civilians/Refugees||
Seventeen Syrians in east Lebanon escaped from a garage they were being held in by relatives of captured soldiers, a security source told The Daily Star Tuesday. The Syrians were taken hostage by people who claimed to be families of soldiers captured by ISIS and the Nusra Front during last month's clashes with the Lebanese Army, said the source, speaking on condition of anonymity. They stayed overnight in a garage in the village of Shmustar and were able to break the door and escape. Media reports said the families held the Syrians to exchange them for the captured soldiers. Meanwhile, the families of the hostages blocked the main northern Batroun-Tripoli highway at Qalamoun, calling for the speedy release of the remaining captives after the Nusra Front freed five soldiers Sunday. Jihadists from ISIS and the Nusra Front are now holding at least 23 soldiers and policemen captive to trade them for Islamist prisoners held at Lebanon’s Roumieh prison. Five soldiers and policemen were freed earlier this week while the body of Ali al-Sayyed, who ISIS beheaded last week, was handed over to the Lebanese Army Monday. In videos posted by the radical groups, the captive soldiers and police officers have pleaded with their communities to block roads in the country to pressure the government to negotiate with the Islamist fighters or they would be killed. The gunmen are demanding the release of Islamist detainees in Roumieh Prison, most of whom have been held since 2007 over involvement in clashes with the Army in the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared. The government has decided to speed up the trials of the detainees and release those who have been in detention longer than any sentence they face. According to judicial sources, the government is working through the Justice Ministry with the judiciary to find “a legal and judicial solution” for the cases of 94 Islamist detainees held in Roumieh prison since 2007, judicial sources said.

|Sieges set off clashes in other areas||Christian militias, Muslim militias, Palestinian militias, National Movement (NM)||
The sieges, which started in January, set off clashes on several fronts across the country, marked by a rise in the number of cross-sectarian abductions. As Christian militias were laying siege to Palestinian camps and Muslim-populated neighborhoods in East Beirut and its suburbs, Palestinian and Muslim militias were attacking Christians in cities and villages in North Lebanon and the Beqaa, as well as on the southern coastal road. This displaced the Christian population from these areas. In central Beirut, NM militias attacked Christian militias in the areas of Kantari and Ain al-Mreisseh. On January 8, 1976, residential areas in East Beirut (Ashrafieh, Sioufi, Geitawi, and Dfouni) came under intense shelling from Ras al-Nabeh, Bechara al-Khoury, and Tel al-Zaatar, all of which were under the NM’s control.

Fighting resumed in Zahleh, Tripoli, and Zgharta, with heavy weaponry. Most Christians fled from Tripoli as well as the Christian villages in the Akkar, and they headed toward the Christian-populated region of Kesrouan, in the northern suburbs of Mount Lebanon. In parallel, tension was on the rise in the capital, paving the way for a resumption of violence. On September 13, 1975, the Dekwaneh-Tel al-Zaatar front in East Beirut flared up, and in the following days, clashes spread to front-line zones, namely Ain al-Remmaneh-Chiyah and—for the first time—downtown Beirut. Snipers, positioned at all the city’s main entry points, were shooting at children, women, and men. Some historians reported that scores of civilians were killed at crossroads, under the bridges, and especially in the areas separating Christian areas from Muslim ones.

|Fighting broke out in several areas in Beirut||National Movement (NM), Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), Lebanese Kataeb Party, National Liberal Party (NLP)||
Over the course of three days, Christian militias on one hand and Lebanese Leftist and Palestinian militias on the other clashed in various parts of the country.
In Beirut, fighting broke out in areas where there was some proximity between Christian-populated residential areas and Palestinian camps or Muslim-populated areas, which would later become regular conflict zones: Dekwaneh-Tel al-Zaatar, Ain al-Remmaneh, Chiyah, Haret Hreik, Mreijeh, Burj al-Barajneh, Karantina, Maslakh, and Ashrafieh. Weapons included rocket launchers, automatic rifles, and mortars of small caliber. Clashes also broke out in North Lebanon between Tripoli and Zgharta. In the Shuf, Palestinian commandos from the Barja region attacked two neighboring Christian villages (Ain al-Assad and Marj Barja), causing a temporary displacement of population toward the Christian-populated East Beirut. And in Saida a general strike was ongoing, with continuous explosions and gunfire.
During this time, according to newspaper reports, 300 people were killed, 1,500 buildings destroyed, and losses amounting to $200 million were reported by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Mahmud Riad, the secretary general of the League of Arab States, landed in Beirut on April 14 and announced a ceasefire on April 16. The Kataeb, the PLO, the National Movement (NM), and the PNL agreed to retract their armed members from the streets. The Kataeb handed over two of the seven party members who were accused of the bus shooting. The ceasefire remained shaky, however, because various incidents of abductions, explosions, and clashes were still taking place across the country.
