The Arab League is preparing a resolution that will readmit Syria to the regional bloc and could begin discussions as early as this month, a diplomatic source from an Arab member state told Russia's Sputnik news agency. "The Arab League is working on a draft resolution to restore Syria’s membership. It might be put up for debate at the Economic and Social Summit in Beirut," the source said.
Beirut’s Criminal Court on Tuesday sentenced the killer of Roy Hamoush to death, more than one year after the crime had taken place. Hamoush, a 24-year-old engineering student, and his friend engaged in a traffic dispute with three armed men on the night of June 6, 2017. The quarrel ended up with Hamoush being shot dead on the Dora highway, noting that he was on his way back home after celebrating his birthday.
