More than five years after the Army fought off militants in the northeastern city of Arsal, the Military Tribunal Thursday sentenced prominent Daesh (ISIS) commander Imad Jomaa and five other terrorists who took part in the clashes. The 2014 arrest of Jomaa, who at the time had recently switched allegiance to Daesh from the Nusra Front (later known as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham), triggered five days of clashes between Lebanese soldiers and militants. Gen. Hussein Abdullah, handed down 20-year prison sentences with hard labor for Jomaa and five Syrian nationals: Abdallah al-Salloum, Doham al-Ramadan, Omar al-Tufeilieh, Mohammad al-Farj and Omar Ibrahim, on terrorism charges.Jomaa was additionally accused of having monitored Army patrols, barracks and schedules.
