إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The military prosecutor charged on Monday 40 suspects for their involvement in the fighting in the northern city of Tripoli, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said the charges were issued against them by State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr.

The 40 suspects include 18 Jabal Mohsen residents, only one of whom is in custody, Bilal al-Baqar and Raef Dandashi, Wael Ibrahim and 19 of his co-conspirators from Bab al-Tabbaneh whose identities are not fully known, NNA said.

The charges include the formation of an armed group aimed at carrying out crimes, the attack on civilian and military institutions, participation in the fighting in Tripoli and the exchange of fire, the agency stated.

The other charges are killing, attempted murder and damage to properties and buildings, NNA said.

The suspects were referred to first Military Examining Magistrate Riyad Abu Ghida.

Several people have been detained since armed forces began implementing a security plan earlier this month to restore law and order to the city.

The army said in a communique on Monday that it has arrested Suleiman Mahmoud al-Ali in Jabal Mohsen as part of the security plan.

Tripoli has witnessed several rounds of fighting linked to the war in neighboring Syria.

Bab al-Tabbaneh is mostly Sunni, whose residents support Syrian rebels in their war to overthrow President Bashar Assad. Jabal Mohsen residents are mostly Alawite, and loyal to Assad, who shares their faith, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.

lol FC just make sure you point on one side, and forget about the other. 18 men from jabal mohsen have not been caught (yet), how many from bab el tabbeneh?

also, most the sniping and killing of civilians were done against jabal mohsen, there were dozens of attacks on people in buses, shot in the legs etc... bab el tabbeneh and surrounding areas had ten times more men than jabal mohsen, where are they now? ask rifi

I'm worried that this Lebanese court, although under military control and thus an extension of NATO, may not be competent to handle these cases. What do we have the Special Tribunal for if not to handle things like this, and also the case of the man who parked his car in the no-parking zone in Beirut for three hours? When I say "we" I mean, of course, The West. Now if you'd like to come visit me in The West, it's located at 1937 J Street NW, Washington, DC. I'm actually the only human member of The West. But I'm always happy to greet people and explain The West's policies as I understand them.

the special tribunal is useless, it's a political tool meant to drain our $$$ and produce nothing but strife.

Someone killed Hariri, the STL will be based on evidence to try and uncover the truth. Why is it useless? You think they will produce fake evidence?
