Beirut has charged three more people with spying for Tel Aviv amid a crackdown on Israeli espionage networks in Lebanon. Saeb Mohammad Aoun and Mohammed Hassan Abdallah were charged on Monday with passing sensitive information to Israel while Ali Hassan al-Ghossein, a third man, was charged with collaborating with Israel and entering the country.
Saeb Mohammad Aoun and Ali Hassan al-Ghossein are currently in custody but Mohammed Hassan Abdallah remains at large. The latest decision by the Lebanese military prosecutor brings to 35 the number of the people who are charged in connection with the Israeli espionage case. Thirteen of those charged people are still at large.
