The case most notably involves Abu Malek al-Talleh, the former commander of Jabhat Fatah al-Sham previously known as the Nusra Front in the Syrian region of Qalamoun, as well as the Arsal Sheikh Mustafa Hujeiri.Hujeiri reportedly played a role as a mediator between the Lebanese government and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham to arrange the 2015 release of 16 Lebanese servicemen taken hostage, after militants from Daesh (ISIS) and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham briefly overran Arsal and clashed with the Lebanese Army there.In early August 2017, when Hezbollah fighters and Red Cross teams escorted 116 buses driving 7,777 Syrian nationals from Arsal region to the Syrian border, Talleh and 1,116 militant fighters were among the passengers bound for Syria.
