HEBBARIEH, Lebanon: Hussein Atwe carries a pitcher of coffee to serve the guests who have come to wish him well following his release from the military hospital, where he insists he was receiving treatment and not under arrest.
Atwe has received a hero's welcome since his release, with photos of him adorning the entrance to the village and along the streets leading to his house.
The source said that Atwe
could be charged by Saqr next week.
The Army has arrested Atwe, who belongs to Al-Jam al-Islamiya and confessed to firing rockets at Israel from the Hasbaya village of Mari earlier this month.
Atwe has reportedly said that his move was in retaliation for Israel's aggression on Gaza.
Last week, the Army arrested Hussein Izzat Atwe
, who belongs to Al-Jam al-Islamiya and confessed to firing rockets at Israel from the Hasbaya village of Mari last Friday.
Except for Hussein Izzat Atwe
, who belongs to Al-Jam al-Islamiya, who has confessed to firing rockets on Israel from the village of Marie in Hasbaya last Friday, no group has so far claimed responsibility for any of the other three rocket attacks on Israel.
Separately, police Monday released a man known as Abu Qais, who was arrested along with Hussein Atwe
over suspicions of participating in the launching of rockets Friday.
Summary: Hussein Izzat Atwe
, the man who single-handedly fired rockets at Israel last week, grew up in the Hasbaya town of Hebbarieh in south Lebanon.
Summary: A member of Al-Jam Al-Islamiya fired rockets at Israel Friday, sources from the group told The Daily Star, adding that Hussein Izzat Atwe
acted of his own volition.
In the Beirut neighborhood of al-Khandaq al-Ghamiq, the carpet seller Atwe
predicts that Lebanon will see a new president after the June 3 elections in Syria.
"I wanted to learn to do flips but I needed someone beside me," says Anthony Atwe
, 17, as a Monday evening training session draws to a close.
