BEIRUT: Military Prosecutor Saqr Saqr charged Thursday a Lebanese man for allegedly conspiring to pass security secrets to Israel, including spying on Hezbollah’s leader.

According to the indictment, T. Kh. was accused of collaborating with Israel’s secret service, meeting Israeli intelligence officers inside and outside the Jewish state, and providing them with information on security posts since 2001.

Among these places was the home of Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, the indictment added.

Saqr referred the case to the military investigative judge.

Separately, Military Judge Imad Zein demanded up to seven years in prison with hard labor for six Lebanese accused of residing in Israel since 2003 and obtaining Israeli citizenship.

Zein referred the case to the military tribunal where they will be tried in absentia.
