Military Court Sentences 3 to Death for Spying for Israel

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Permanent Military Tribunal headed by Brig. Gen. Nizar Khalil on Friday sentenced to death Haitham al-Sahmarani, a retired Internal Security Forces first sergeant, on charges of collaboration with Israel.

Upon his arrest in 2009 Sahmarani confessed to collaborating, along with his wife, with the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency.

With the help of his sister who had fled to Israel in 2000, Sahmarani began his relation with the Israelis in 2004.

The sister, Sahera al-Sahmarani, and her husband Mohammed Amin Khazaal were sentenced to death in absentia on Friday.

Hizbullah’s mouthpiece, Al-Manar television, said “Sahmarani met with Israeli officers in Turkey and Israel and gave coordinates to the enemy during the (2006) July war of (Hizbullah chief) Sayyed (Hassan) Nasrallah's possible locations.”

Separately, the military tribunal sentenced Ragheda Daher to two years hard labor on charges of spying for Israel.

And it handed a similar verdict to Assem Hammoud, who had been accused of plotting to bomb train tunnels in the U.S.

More than 100 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for the Israeli Mossad since April 2009, including members of the security forces and telecom employees.

Several have since been sentenced to death.

Sentence to death for cooperating with a foreign entity? Why Nassrallah has not been impeached and sentenced to death for pulling the trigger to kill 2000 Lebanese people and destroying the entire infrastructure in 2006? This is why you need the STL because every single crime is politicized.

Many Aounists are collaborators of Israel. I bet the leader knew about it and gave them the green light. Same for the 4 Hezbollah men that killed Hariri. Nasrallah gave them the green light. They deserve a life sentence.

the filthy zionist media slime hallucinate that someone here blames LF/kataeb for what they didn't do.

there is nothing bad that they didn't do. ok, they didn't drop nuclear weapon, but they didn't have them, so you never know what would be if they did have.

the filthy zionist media terrorists have problems with identifying each other.

This is my opinion:
It is ok to talk to Israel, It is ok to talk to Iran, It is ok to talk to Saudi arabia, it is ok to talk to the USA and Russia and all the rest.

But if we talk to Iran ans Saudi, then why not Israel and USA?

I think if we cut Israel out then we should cut Iran/Saudi out and be neutral.

How can we impose an ideology where we cant talk to Israel because they are 'zionist' and talk to Iran/Saudi - where they are clearly Islamist!

Do not hang anyone for dealing with any country because there are evidence people from all sides dealt with America, France, Iran, Israel and etc.. There are people with and against the above Countries so any law that might exist is false and fake based on a political agenda and a true referendum from the Lebanese citizens and their representatives.

"filthy zionist media terrorist""filthy zionist media terrorist""filthy zionist media terrorist""filthy zionist media terrorist" over and over again! OMG PLEASE GET OVER YOUR OBSESSION!!!!!! its not healthy for OUR country!
Guys, i really think we have a growing cancer in the south of OUR country! that really needs to get taken care off! Maybe we should invite Israel to clean up the trash there?
Also, all that your "glorious" resistance has done is make Israel even stronger and make Lebanon much weaker and Palestine at the same place! Good job! Hope your "glorious" resistance is happy..
