(SALEM, Ore.) - Lebanese military intelligence officials recently arrested a man over alleged involvement in terrorist attacks, and they say the man, Ebrahim Maghsood, is in contact with Ashraf Rifi, the general director of the Lebanese Internal Security Forces from 2005 to 2013.

The Panorama Asharq Al-Awsat (aawsat.com) news agency reported that Maghsood is from a village near Danina. Maghsood was arrested by military intelligence at his home where weapons and explosives were also reportedly seized.

After Ebrahim Maghsood was taken into custody, Ashraf Rifi is said to have called the Lebanese military intelligence officials affiliated with the Al Mustaqbal political movement in the north and demanded that they liberate Maghsood quickly.

Following this contact, the army released the suspected terrorist under the pretext that he would only be charged with possession of illegal arms.

It is worth noting that Ebrahim Maghsood is alleged to be an agent of Ashraf Rifi with whom he is in direct contact. Concerned over disclosing his relations with Rifi, military intelligence quickly released him.

Ashraf Rifi has intervened before in other cases, allegedly to divert the course of the investigation such as the case of the Saudi Prince who was arrested with tons of drugs and Daiatal Islam al-Shahala, leader of an extremist Islamist group who fled to Turkey after a series of terrorist acts in Lebanon.
