Military Investigative Judge Imad

Zein made the decision on Tuesday, after interrogating the man, whose nationality was not released and was identified only by his initials K. B.

The suspect is among 14 people, who are accused of opening lines of communication between residents of the Palestinian Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp near Lebanon’s southern city of Sidon and Syrian insurgents.

The man is also suspected of arranging the escape of an Algerian convict, reportedly a member of militant group Fatah al-Islam, from Roumieh prison.

The suspect, currently in detention, later facilitated the prisoner’s transport to Syria.

On October 28, a blast in northern Lebanon killed a homemade weapons manufacturer as he was working on a machine gun for Syrian insurgents.

Marwan al-Qassab was trying to make a Dushka machine gun when the explosion rocked his small, illicit weapons factory in the town of Minieh, located 96 kilometers (60 miles) north of Beirut.
Since the beginning of unrest in Syria, Lebanese army has seized a large number of consignments of weapons and ammunitions bound for insurgents in Syria.

On September 25, Lebanese army intercepted a vehicle laden with military equipment destined for foreign-sponsored insurgents in Syria.

The army said the vehicle was seized at a checkpoint near the al-Qaa border crossing in eastern Lebanon. Five Syrian nationals, who had been illegally residing in Lebanon, were also on board.
