Three men were arrested by Hezbollah on suspicion that they had been spying for Israel and the US, Arab news sources reported on Tuesday.

Al Arabiya quoted officials of the Shiite terror organization who said that the three had operated in the vicinity of Hezbollah’s stronghold in the Dahieh neighborhood in south Beirut, passing information about the organization to the American CIA and the Israeli Mossad intelligence agencies.
