According to the Lebanese Army command, “The pick-up truck driver was arrested and the materials were confiscated.”
It further added that “the competent court has opened an investigation in the incident.”
In parallel, al-Ahed news learned that the LA’s confiscation reached more than 2700 gas masks.
According to the sources, the suspended N. H is just responsible for securing the transfer of these masks from Shebaa through the Jebel Sheikh to the area of Beit Jan in the occupied Golan Heights.
Meanwhile, media reports suggested that the truck was bound for the Syrian opposition.
