BEIRUT: Investigative Military Judge Fadi Sawan Monday issued arrest warrants for four individuals on charges of belonging to the Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) and planning terrorist attacks in Lebanon, a judicial source told The Daily Star.

The judge issued the warrants after interrogating three of the suspects named Abdel-Majid Hmeidan, Mohammad Ali and Alaa al-Mohammad who hail from the northern region of Wadi Khaled.

The three were arrested in the eastern town of Labweh last week.

Sawan also issued an in absentia warrant against Omar al-Satem who is reportedly fighting in Syria.

Satem is an ISIS commander in Syria’s Yabroud and he is the uncle of Qotaiba Mohammad al-Satem, who was identified as the suicide bomber behind the Jan. 2 deadly attack in Beirut’s southern suburb of Haret Hreik, the source said.

Satem trained the three suspects in Yabroud in order to carry out terrorist attacks in Lebanon, the source added.

The National News Agency also reported that the three suspects met once with the ISIS Emir in Syria’s Dankuk after visiting Yabroud.
