Last month, Yoni Alpert’s Terror Watch reported that Iranian Revolutionary Guards along with Hezbollah’s security apparatus arrested Hussein Fahs, who is considered Hezbollah’s CFO and head of the organization’s operational communications network. Fahs was arrested at Beirut’s Hariri Airport, on his way to an unknown destination. He and four other Hezbollah members were interrogated on suspicion of embezzling the organization’s funds and of collaborating with Israeli Intelligence. At the time it was suspected that they stole at least $5 million in Iranian aid funds.

Now it turns out, according to TW, citing Lebanese sources, that Fahs, a 29-year-old telecommunications engineer, a native of southern Lebanon, was able to flee the country, crossing the border into Israel.

According to official Hezbollah sources, Fahs took with him maps, classified documents and a large sum of money.

In somewhat related news, on Tuesday a Lebanese Military Tribunal Judge by the name of Imad al-Zein issued eight arrest warrants against Lebanese citizens charged with collaborating with Israel, Lebanon’s National News Agency reported.

According to the report, seven women and one man are charged in absentia with collaborating with Israel, entering Israel illegally and obtaining Israeli citizenship.

The suspects face 15 years of hard labor in prison—but, naturally, they would have to be captured first

The eight are also natives of southern Lebanon.

According to Nahar Net, Lebanese authorities have arrested more than 100 people on suspicion of collaborating with the Israeli spy agency Mossad since April 2009, including high-ranking security and telecommunications officials.

  1. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Send that money back to the Hezbollah via and after exchanging it for missiles, rockets and bombs.

  2. Tim Upham says:

    He broke the law, deport him back to Lebanon. Israel is not a haven for criminals.

  3. Mark Gray says:

    Tim, he's someone's hero

  4. Ron Kall says:

    What law? muslim law? If he can help Israels security while depositing Iranian terrorist funds, sounds like a win win and a good example for other defectors to the free world!

  5. Tim Upham says:

    Embezzlement is a crime in every nation of the world. Israel does not have to be a safe haven for an embezzler.

  6. Les Legato says:

    Track down Tim Upham, waterboard him and then send him back to the jihadis with a chip up his tushi or a note saying he's a mossad agent. TAKE YOUR PICK, TIM, or should we call you achmed?

  7. Juan Roth says:

    Tim Crazyyyyyy !!!

  8. Liad Bar-el says:

    Theft is theft and one cannot steal from a thief and be counted as a righteous deed; however, let's just say that this money is that much less money that Hezbollah is going to spend against Israel to kill innocent men, women and children. IMO, all of Hezbollah's money should have been taken and this money that was taken should be used to rebuild in Israel what Hezbollah has destroyed.
