BEIRUT, Lebanon, July 10 (UPI) -- Hezbollah arrested three people suspected of running a spy network for Israel and the United States, a source told al-Arabiya.
The three, identified as Mohammed al-Husseini, Jihad Jaloul and Mohammed al-Sabaa, were arrested in a southern Beirut suburb. The three were active in Hezbollah and are suspected of supplying information to the CIA and Israel's Mossad, al-Arabiya said Tuesday.
The Hezbollah-affiliated Lebanese daily an-Nahar, which broke the story Monday denied the three worked for Hezbollah but said they were on good terms with Hezbollah members, al-Arabiya said.
In June 2011, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said two spies working for the CIA had infiltrated the ranks of the party and described the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon as a "den of spies," the Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star said.
The Daily Star said Nasrallah is expected to mention the arrests at a speech July 18 marking the sixth anniversary of the 2006 war with Israel.
