Lebanon sentences Israel spies to death
A Lebanese military court sentenced three of the country’s citizens to death for spying for Israel.
Two of the alleged spies had fled the country, reportedly for Israel, and were sentenced in absentia. The third man, Jawdat el-Hakim, admitted to working for Israel for 10 years beginning in 1999, Ynet reported.
The men can appeal the sentence to a higher court.
