SIDON, Lebanon: An unidentified gunman shot and wounded Friday a member of the pro-Hezbollah Resistance Brigades in the Sidon suburb of Abra, south Lebanon, a security source said Friday.

The source said the gunman targeted Ahmad al-Saadi, a member of the pro-Hezbollah Resistance Brigades, from his car.

Saadi was taken to a local Sidon hospital for treatment, the source said.

He said the gunman sped off immediately after the shooting around 2 a.m.

In June, Abra was the scene of a military crackdown on now fugitive Sheikh Ahmad Assir after supporters of Salafist preacher attacked and killed several soldiers at an Army checkpoint.

Assir, who remains at large, is a fierce critic of Hezbollah and accused the Resistance Brigades of spying on him.
