This week's Cabinet meeting will include discussion on the issue of a potential Judicial Council investigation into clashes in Lebanon's northeastern region, lawyers representing the families of slain servicemen said Wednesday.The families of two Lebanese servicemen killed in violence that shook the country's northeastern region from 2012 to 2017 had asked that the ministers of Justice and Defense refer the issue of the clashes to the Judicial Council, which is the highest court in Lebanon. The request, obtained by The Daily Star at the time, called on the Judicial Council to open an investigation into the events in northeast Lebanon between 2012 and 2017 that left scores of Army and policemen dead or injured.The lawyers' statement released Wednesday noted that the issue had come to be on Cabinet's agenda thanks to work by Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf.
