BEIRUT: Lebanon issued arrest warrants Thursday for two terrorist suspects accused of trying to kill Lebanese soldiers.

Military Investigative Judge Fadi Sawwan signed off on the warrants against Qossay Moussa, a Lebanese national who hails from the northern border region of Wadi Khaled, and Hussein Berri, a stateless citizen residing in Lebanon.

Sawwan accused the two men of belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), a jihadist militant umbrella group with links to Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

The suspects were also accused of plotting terrorist acts and trying to kill Army soldiers in Wadi Khaled.
