BEIRUT: Military Prosecutor Saqr Saqr Monday charged three people with endangering Lebanon’s security over a recent rocket attack from Lebanese territory into Israel, judicial sources said.

The charges were filed against Youssef Mohammad Fliti and Omar Abdel-Mawla al-Atrash who confessed to providing the four rockets used in the Aug. 22 rocket from south Lebanon into Israel.

Charges were filed against a third person who was not identified and remains at large.

The charges included “endangering Lebanon’s safety.”

In a statement over the weekend, the Army said Fliti and Atrash both confessed they had transferred four Katyusha rockets from the West Bekaa village of Gaza and delivered them to a man in Tyre.

The barrage of rockets into Israel from Tyre, south Lebanon, was met with swift retaliation from the Israeli air force, which on Aug. 23 fired a missile at a base belonging to an armed Palestinian faction south of Lebanese capital.
