Lebanon charges three as spies for Israel


A military court in Lebanon charged three men for collaborating with Israel.

The military prosecutor reportedly will seek the death penalty against the two Lebanese citizens and one Palestinian. One of the Lebanese suspects was charged in absentia.

The men are accused of “providing Israel with information as well as facilitating its aggressions and terrorist acts on Lebanon,” according to the charge sheet, AFP reported. Lebanon has arrested more than 20 alleged spies, including members of its military, since a crackdown began in April 2009.

The men charged Monday reportedly gave Israel information on Hezbollah’s weapons storage and on the location of the homes of Hezbollah officials, according to the London-based Arabic newspaper Al-Hayat.
