BEIRUT: Military Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr Tuesday charged a detained Lebanese and a fugitive Palestinian with having links to a senior commander in the Al-Qaeda-linked Abudallah Azzam Brigades.

The judge referred the case to Military Investigative Judge Imad Zen who will interrogate the Lebanese on Thursday.

The case of the two was included in Jamal Daftardar’s case, the Brigades’ senior commander.

Daftardar, who was arrested in December, was charged along with 12 others for belonging to Abudallah Azzam Brigades and Nusra Front with the aim of carrying out terrorist attacks.

The 12 remain at large.

Daftardar was also charged with recruiting dozens of men and transferring them to Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen after training them to make weapons and explosives.

He was regarded as the main candidate to take over the Abdullah Azzam Brigades leadership following the death earlier this year of its leader Majid al-Majid, who passed away while in custody.

The group claimed responsibility for the Nov. 19 suicide bombing outside Iran’s Embassy in Beirut that killed 30 people.
