Operator of Fake Terrorist Group Account Faces Trial at Military Court

First Military Examining Magistrate Judge Riyad Abu Ghida issued on Monday an indictment against the operator of the Free Sunnis of Baalbek Brigade's twitter account.

The judge also called for Hussein al-Hussein to be tried at the military court.

Al-Hussein was charged last month with operating the “fake” account for the purpose of creating sedition.

The 19-year-old has been accused of threatening the residents of Baalbek, politicians and security figures and the Lebanese army, in addition to claiming suicide attacks and the launching of rockets on Baalbek and Hermel.

He has also been held responsible for inciting sedition among nationals in an attempt to create hatred and hostility and provoking rift between sects.
