Three Daesh (ISIS) militants hatched a plan to assassinate a Hezbollah operative in Syria's Qusair in 2013 but failed to kill him on two attempts, one of the militants told the Military Court Friday. Last December, Lebanese Ahmad Ammoun was charged in absentia alongside four Syrians with plotting to carry out terrorist attacks and taking part in security and logistics acts and finance operations for the benefit of Daesh.Ammoun appeared in the Military Court Friday, confessing to having carried out two assassination attempts against alleged Hezbollah informant Mohammad Wehbe, alongside two other Daesh militants identified as Abu Bakr al-Raqqa and Abu Abdel-Salam.The attempt failed again after Ammoun detonated the bomb moments too late, with Wehbe miraculously escaping with his life.
