BEIRUT: Five gunmen assaulted the driver of the head of Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya in Beirut’s southern suburbs Friday, a security source told The Daily Star.

Gunmen intercepted the vehicle of Sheikh Ahmad al-Omari, pulled the driver out of the car and beat him, the source said. Omari and his wife remained inside.

The incident took place near Al-Rasoul al-Azam Hospital.

The sheikh, a staunch supporter of the Syrian opposition, was on his way to his house from Burj al-Barajneh where he held Friday prayers.
