Lebanese man sentenced for spying for Israel

Lebanese man sentenced for spying for Israel

Lebanese judicial officials say a military court has convicted a man of spying for Israel and sentenced him to 15 years in prison and hard labor.
Lebanon and Israel are technically still at war, and more than 100 people in Lebanon have been arrested since 2009 on suspicion of collaborating with the Jewish state.
The officials said the man convicted late Thursday, Zaid Homsi, began working with Israel in 2006.
They said Homsi supplied Israeli agents with pictures of an area in the eastern Bekaa Valley where three Israeli soldiers went missing in a 1982 battle during Israel's invasion of Lebanon.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.
Lebanon has sentenced at least eight people to death this year for spying.
