An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that Ghabash sent photos of Itani to members of the ISF, instead of members of State Security. The Daily Star regrets this error.

In testimony at the Military Tribunal Friday, Elie Ghabash gave conflicting statements, but in the end, insisted that the former head of the ISF's Anti-Cybercrime Bureau had only ordered him to find evidence that showed that Itani had links to Israel.One of the ISF officers, he said, was Suzanne Hajj Hobeiche.Ghabash worked for the bureau for a time, infiltrating Israeli and Daesh (ISIS) websites, before he transferred to a private company.He and Hajj Hobeiche later started to exchange text messages.Ghabash is set to complete his testimony on Feb. 7, when Hajj Hobeiche will also take to the stand.
