From Singer to Rebel: Fadel Shaker may receive the death penalty
How does one go from being a famous romantic singer into a jihadist rebel? Ask ex-singer Fadel Shaker!
The Lebanese Military court is allegedly accusing retired Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker of murdering soldiers in Lebanon. Also on the accused-list is Sheikh Ahmad Al Assir and his sons.
Shaker turned into a jihadist supporter of the Salafist sheikh Ahmad al-Assir a few years ago, causing astonishment among fans and fellow celebs alike.
The court said the accused had formed an armed gang with the intention of harming people and stealing money, and to undermine the state's authorities using terrorist acts.
Shaker and Co. were further accused of attacking elements of the Lebanese Army, killing soldiers and injuring others.
The list went on; the group were said to have also vandalized military property, in turn causing damage to buildings and cars, and possessing military weapons, detonators and explosives.
If all charges were proven true then the death penalty would apply to Fadel and his jihadist group.
Recently, the ex-singer appeared in a video bragging about killing two people and injuring others in the battle of Abra, South of Sidon in Lebanon.
