A hearing for the trial of notorious Arsal Sheikh Mustafa al-Hujeiri scheduled for Thursday was postponed until next month for further investigations, according to a judicial source.Gen. Hussein Abdullah was unable to question him, as the preliminary investigation file carried out with Army intelligence had not yet reached the court.The trial session for a number of the accused began at noon, when Judge Abdullah called on Hujeiri. Those on trial alongside Hujeira included Daesh (ISIS) commander Imad Jomaa and Mohammed Hussein, a Syrian national who was the local commander of Jabhat Fatah al-Sham – formerly known as the Nusra Front – in Qalamoun.
