NNA - The permanent military court, headed by Brigadier General Hussein Abdullah, postponed until January 15 the trial of eight detainees, arrested by the international coalition forces in Syria after the end of the battle of Raqqa, and handed over by Americans to the Lebanese authorities last August.

Those defendants are tried on charges of belonging to the terrorist organization Daesh, participating in military activities, and incite people to join the organization.
