Since its publication, Rabih Tlais told several of his friends that he was threatened and being followed. In a video he released a couple of weeks ago, he reported that Hezbollah was trying to frame him for “working with Israel.”
Rabih’s family, friends, and close contacts reported that he was acting increasingly nervous and worried, leading up to a few days ago when no one was able to reach or locate him. All calls and texts had since gone unanswered.
