Israel, on Monday, charged three Hezbollah arrested in Lebanon during the recent war with murder for involvement in deadly attacks on soldiers.
In an indictment police submitted to the district court in the northern town of Nazareth, the three were charged with murder, attempted murder and membership in an enemy organisation, police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said.
A fourth Hezbollah member currently under arrest has not yet been charged, Rosenfeld said.
The three are Hussein Suleiman, 22, Mohammed Sarour, 20, and Maher Housani, 30, Rosenfeld said.
Suleiman is accused of planning events that sparked the 34-day war on July 12, in which Hezbollah militants infiltrated Israel to attack a border patrol, killing three soldiers and capturing two, Rosenfeld said.
The defendant is also accused of involvement in other deadly attacks on soldiers.
Sarour and Hourani are accused of taking part in attacks against soldiers along the border, Rosenfeld said.
Rosenfeld claims the three have confessed to their part in the attacks and to receiving military training in Iran, Hezbollah's key sponsor.
