BEIRUT: Military Investigative Judge Imad al-Zein issued arrest warrants Thursday against four Palestinians accused of belonging to the radical Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra.
The four are accused of belonging to the al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, one of the strongest rebel groups fighting in Syria, and operating in Lebanon with the aim of carrying out terrorist attacks, collecting funds and recruiting members for the group.
The judge issued one warrant against a Palestinian identified by his initials S.H. and three warrants in absentia against Palestinians identified as H.M. M.M. and A.SH.
Several members of Jabhat al-Nusra have been charged in Lebanon courts and some politicians argue that the group has training camps and bases in the country.
