Israeli spying sisters arrested in Lebanon

DUBAI (Mustapha Ajbaili and Courtney C. Radsch)

Lebanese internal security forces arrested two Israeli sisters at Beirut’s international airport as they tried to leave the country after one of them voted in Sunday’s parliamentary election, a Hezbollah-affiliated website and TV station reported late Wednesday.

Sisters Josephine Moussa, 67, and Georgette, 69, entered Lebanon with Lebanese passports shortly before the hotly contested parliamentary elections but they reportedly lived in Israel and held Israeli passports, according to the media reports. Josephine was also said to possess an American passport.

The American embassy told Al Arabiya it had no information about the incident and did not know whether Josephine had contacted the embassy.
