August 16, 2010 - Now Lebanon - Karam briefed Israelis on Aoun-Nasrallah meetings, says source

An anonymous Lebanese security source told Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Anbaa in an interview published on Monday that retired Brigadier General Fayez Karam, a Free Patriotic Movement official who was arrested on suspicion of collaborating with Israel, was supplying Tel Aviv with information about meetings being held between FPM leader MP Michel Aoun and Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

Karam was arrested by security forces earlier this month. Some media reports said that Karam might have been collaborating with Israel for almost 30 years.

“Evidence proves that Karam had enhanced his calls with the Israelis [before he was arrested],” the source said, adding that pictures of Karam meeting with Israelis in an unnamed European country were revealed.

August 15, 2010 - Naharnet - Report: Nasrallah Advised Aoun to Ease up after Attempts to 'Mobilize' him against Karam's Arrest

Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun has reportedly tried to "mobilize" Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah against the arrest of retired Brig. Gen. Fayez Karam.
However, Nasrallah asked Aoun to ease up given that the Intelligence Bureau's decision to arrest the top FPM official couldn't have come without evidence and a clear examination of Karam's suspected ties to Israel.

An Nahar daily quoted sources as saying that Karam was arrested after luring him into a meeting with head of the Intelligence Bureau Col. Wissam al-Hassan.

In their last phone conversation, al-Hassan asked Karam to visit him at his office and confronted him with a file implicating him in the spying case, the sources said.

Karam's home was later raided, they said.

Ziad al-Saadi was found guilty of spying for Israel and sentenced to 20 years in prison with hard labor.

He was also charged with engaging in espionage plots on behalf of Israel and providing information on political and party figures.
Saadi, a half-paralyzed Brig. Gen., confessed he started spying for Israel in 2004 by providing information about Hizbullah and the Resistance.

The Israeli agent also admitted he spied on family members and fellow residents from his hometown Shebaa.

Saadi, an airman, said he worked as representative of the Palestine Liberation Organization at the United Nations, and holds several medals.
