The source said that those sentenced to death include 73 Syrians, 32 Lebanese and one Palestinian. Only 77 of those are currently in custody.
In August 2014, the Lebanese army clashed with Daesh and the Al-Nusra Front, in the town of Arsal. Extremists kidnapped 30 soldiers and policemen as they withdrew. An exchange was later made for 16 captives and the release of extremist prisoners jailed in Lebanon.
Since the start of the five-year civil war in Syria, Lebanon has become home to over a million Syrian refugees.
Capital punishment has been de-facto abolished in Lebanon, with the last execution held in 2004. In 2011, some 50 people were sentenced to death in Lebanon, but the latest sentence triples this number. Whether the sentences will be carried out remains unknown.
