Syrian Minister of the Interior Muhammad Ibrahim al-Sha'ar is accused of committing a genocide against hundreds of Lebanese people in 1986.
Lebanese attorney Tariq Shendab said on Monday that he filed a criminal complaint against al-Sha'ar for the "genocide" committed in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli in 1986.
Shendab argued that hundreds of people, including religious figures and children, were killed in Babi et-Tiban region in 1986 and that al-Sha'ar was responsible for the "genocide".
"On December 19, 1986, Muhammad al-Sha'ar and a group of Lebanese massacred more than 600 people in the Babi et-Tiban region. Among those massacred were scholars, children and the elderly," Shendab argued in his criminal complaint.
Tariq Shendab also asked the prosecutor to arrest al-Sha'ar and send him to a court.
Ibrahim al-Sha'ar was wounded on December 12, 2012 when a bomb attack was staged on the Syrian Interior Ministry. He was taken to a hospital in Beirut on December 19 for medical treatment.
