Warrant Out for Dissident Syrian Colonel over Terror Plotsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The military examining magistrate issued on Thursday an arrest warrant against a dissident Syrian colonel for forming an armed gang to carry out terrorist activities.
The warrant was issued after Judge Fadi Sawan interrogated the suspect identified as Ahmed Amer, a Syrian Army colonel who has defected.
He referred him to the military prosecution to take the appropriate action.
On Wednesday, the State Commissioner to the Military Court, Judge Saqr Saqr, charged 12 people, including a Lebanese and 2 Syrians who are in custody, with plotting terrorist activities and planning assassinations.
The three suspects were arrested by the General Security Department.
But LBCI TV said Amer is not linked with the 12-member network.
He was seeking to recruit fighters to send them to Syria, it said.
