BEIRUT: Two Lebanese and a Palestinian were charged Thursday with planning to carry out “terror attacks” across Lebanon.
Judge Danny Zeani charged the three men with arms possession and making bombs in the Palestinian refugee camp of Ain el-Hilweh in south Lebanon.
The suspects were also charged with planning to carry out terrorist attacks in specific areas of Lebanon, a judicial source told The Daily Star.
The source said the three suspects were arrested by members of the Internal Security Forces-Information Branch earlier this week.
Lebanon has been hit by a spate of rocket and bombing attacks linked to the war in neighboring Syria.
Lebanese Army chief Gen. Jean Kahwagi said Wednesday the military is pursuing terrorists involved in creating and detonating car bombs with the intention of igniting sectarian strife in the country.
