Lebanon asks help from Interpol to arrest senior Israeli agent
Lebanon has asked Interpol to issue an arrest warrant against a Lebanese ex-general suspecting of working for the Israeli intelligence, a judicial source said on Thursday. "Prosecutor General Said Mirza sent an arrest warrant in absentia against Ghassan al-Jidd, who is suspected of having collaborated with Israeli intelligence, to the Interpol office in Beirut to be circulated abroad," the source told AFP.
Jidd's name first emerged last month when Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah revealed a list of "spies" working for Israel at a media conference dedicated to present evidence for the Israeli involvement in the 2005's killing of ex-Premier Rafiq al Hariri. Local press reports say Jidd, a retired Lebanese army general, may have fled to Israel or France.
