“The Tripoli incident was a surprise to all, but the Lebanese army and the security forces were ready and fully coordinated before the holidays,” Defense Minister Elias Bou Saab said in an interview with “Sawt al-Mada” radio station.

“The terrorist operation carried out by Abdurrahman Mabsout is still vague and unclear,” Bou Saab said, adding that Mabsout had fought with Daesh (ISIS) in Syria and served time in Lebanese prison in 2016 and 2017.

The Minister also pointed out that political interference may appear in such cases.
