A Lebanese military judge Monday issued arrest warrants after interrogating three detainees suspected of having links to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, Lebanon’s National News Agency reported.

The NNA said Military Investigative Judge Fadi Sawwan issued the warrants after interrogating Abdel-Majid Hmaydan, Mohammad Ali and Alaa Mohammad over charges of belonging to ISIS with the aim of carrying out terrorist acts.

The three suspects are from Wadi Khaled in Akkar, north Lebanon, the NNA said.

The judge also issued an arrest warrant for a Omar al-Satem who is believed to be in Syria.

According to the NNA, the three suspects met the ISIS Emir in Dankuk after visiting Syria’s Yabroud.
