(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Diplomatic sources close to Lebanese "March 8" forces informed " al-Joumhoria" newspaper that "Lutfulla II" ship was loaded with Qatari Army weapons.
The daily unveiled that "boxes loaded within the ship were labelled from the Gulf country's Army."
"Abd al-Aziz al-Attiya, the Qatari who was arrested with Shadi al-Mawlawi, is one of the prominent financiers of "al-Qaeda" in Syria and Lebanon," it revealed.
According to the sources, "al-Attiya is the brother of Abu Khalifa al-Attiya, the Head the Qatar Amiri Diwan [Qatar Presidential Palace]."
"The Emir of Qatar, Hamad Bin Khalifa, interfered personally to release al-Attiya, as he requested from PM Mikati to find the appropriate outcome of the issue," "al-Joumhoria" uncovered.
The sources added that "Qatar is trying to make itself a regional influential power via its support to the radical Islamic movements to reach power."
"It is trying to become a political partner in building the so-called "new democracy," they concluded.
Weeks ago, the Lebanese army confiscated a ship loaded with arms heading to the Syrian rebels via Tripoli's Northern port.
