Lebanese military judge Riad Abou Ghida has begun interrogating suspected members of so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group that were nabbed in a recent Beirut hotel raid.

Lebanon’s National News Agency reported Thursday that only seven of the 28 people charged on Monday with belonging to ISIL terror group and seeking to carry out suicide terrorist attacks in Lebanon were in Lebanese custody.

The seven suspects were arrested in the recent hotel raids across Beirut. The remaining 21 suspects are still at large.

In separate suspected terrorist case involving the ISIL, Lebanese military magistrate Imam Zeid began interrogating a Syrian army defector recently arrested while travelling from Beirut to the Bekaa Valley using his brother’s identification card.

That suspect is also charged with belonging to the Takfiri ISIL terror gang as well as trying to recruit suicide bombers to dispatch them to Syria for terror attacks against army checkpoints.

The ISIL terrorist group has been most active in Syria and Iraq and is widely believe to be financed and supplied by Saudi Arabia and some of its Persian Gulf Arab allies.

Its leaders have recently threatened to infiltrate into Lebanon in a bid to destabilize the multi-ethnic country as it has done so in Iraq and Syria.
