Why is this case going to a military court? (one in a long series from Lebanon)

Lebanon is at it again, this time referring a case involving the murder of two aides to a cabinet member to the country's military court. Details (confusing one) can be found here. There is no suggestion in the report that the perpetrators were members of the armed forces.

Human rights jurisprudence strongly disfavors the trial of civilians by military courts.
