A hearing held at the Military Tribunal Thursday for suspects in the 2015 twin Burj al-Barajneh bombings revealed details of other planned bombings, the state-run National News Agency reported.The hearing also included a testimony from Ibrahim Raeed, who is accused of transporting suicide bombers, munitions and explosives from the Bekaa to Tripoli and on to Beirut. Both suspects are accused of belonging to Daesh (ISIS), planning to carry out terrorist acts and participating and being involved in the 2015 Burj al-Barajneh bombings. Abdullah began the trial by emphasizing the twin bombings had been among the largest-scale terror attacks carried out in Lebanon's history. Abdullah said Jamal had been arrested at dawn the day after the bombing attack, before he could carry out the planned attack in Jabal Mohsen. Raeed had then transported Abu Walid to Tripoli.
