BEIRUT: Gunmen in a car opened fire on a Hezbollah security checkpoint in a Beirut suburb early Tuesday morning and Hezbollah fighters manning the post returned fire, security sources said.
It was not immediately clear whether anyone was hurt in the 2 a.m. attack in the southern suburb neighborhood of Hay Farhat, the sources told The Daily Star.
They said gunmen in an Infiniti SUV with tinted glass opened fire on a Hezbollah checkpoint set up after Thursday's devastating car bomb attack which killed 30 people and wounded more than 300 in Ruwaiss, a southern suburb of Beirut.
The sources said Hezbollah gunfire shattered the rear window of the car and the gunmen then sped off toward the nearby airport road.
The suburbs have been on high alert since the attack, with checkpoints set up at most entrances to the Hezbollah controlled areas.
