Lebanon Sentences 2 Syrians For Collaborating With Israeli Officers

Egypt Independent

Two Syrian nationals have been sentenced for collaborating with Israeli officers, the National News Agency (NNA) reported on Tuesday.

The Permanent Military Court, headed by Brig. Gen. Munir Shehadeh, issued its verdict in the case of Mostafa Badri Ahmed and Badri Mostafa Ahmed, for having communicated with officers in the Israeli military.

The defendants had been accused of being in contact with the Israeli officers with the aim of providing them with information about Hezbollah operatives and sites, according to the NNA.

On Tuesday, Mustafa Badri Ahmed was sentenced to five years of hard labor and stripped of his civil rights, while Badri Mostafa Ahmed, who was also stripped of his civil rights, received a 3-year prison sentence.

It’s worth mentioning that the 1955 Israel boycott law prohibits Lebanese citizens from entering Israel, having any form of contact with Israeli people, or engaging in direct or indirect trade with Israel.
