Lebanon's military prosecutor Thursday charged Sheikh Omar Atrash over his alleged involvement in several car bombings as well as attacks targeting the Lebanese Army, Hezbollah and Israel.Hours before Judge Saqr Saqr charged Atrash, the military disclosed some of what the Sunni preacher confessed to during interrogation, including that he had ties to Al-Qaeda-linked groups and had transported suicide bombers into Lebanon.The Jan. 2 attack was the work of a suicide bomber.The Army reported that Atrash said he then handed the vehicles over to Naeem Abbas, a man the Army described as a "terrorist".Atrash, accompanied by a man identified as Abu Farouq, also reportedly said he had transported another vehicle that was later used in an attack.Atrash reportedly disclosed that he had personally brought four rockets into Lebanon from Syria that were launched into Israel on Aug. 22, 2013 .
