Gen. Hussein Abdullah called the 17 defendants for questioning in the joint case, including Mikati and his cousin Omar Mikati.During prior questioning by an investigative judge ahead of Thursday's session, Bilal Mikati reportedly admitted coolly to having killed Sayyed upon the request of Daesh (ISIS) commanders.According to the investigative report, Mikati said that Sayyed had been killed because he was a Sunni and Daesh believed it would hasten negotiations and pressure the Lebanese government to fulfill the militant group's demands.Abdullah turned to Omar Mikati to ask whether he had cut off the ear of one of the nine hostage servicemen. Omar said that he hadn't been involved in the case of the nine soldiers taken hostage by Daesh.
