Members of Israeli spy ring 'related to 9/11 hijacker'

The Lebanese Army announced on 2 November 2008 that it had arrested two people suspected of involvement with a spy network that gathered information for Israel's intelligence services.

The army said the men had admitted "gathering information on political party offices and monitoring the movements of party figures for the enemy."

The statement added that the men had been found with "communications devices and other sophisticated equipment," which they used to gather information and transmit it to Mossad agents.

Investigators said that the men had passed information about the location of Lebanese and Syrian army outposts to the Israelis.

The source said the men are relatives of Ziad Jarrah, the Lebanese who allegedly was on United Airlines Flight 93 before it crashed into a Pennsylvania field on September 11, 2001, killing everyone on board.

The Jarrah family have repeatedly denied that Ziad was part of the September 11 plot.

Lebanese officials are investigating a theory that the recently arrested group provided intelligence to the Israelis that may have helped them plan the killing of the senior Hizbullah military commander Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus in February.

Hizbullah's leader, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, has accused Israel of being behind the car bomb that killed Mughniyeh and has pledged that the Shiite group will take revenge for his death.

An Israeli government spokesman refused to comment on the arrests.
