BEIRUT: Gunmen shot and wounded three soldiers in the eastern city of Baalbek, the Army said Tuesday, adding that a number of the suspects were arrested.
Gunmen on board a vehicle shot at an Army unit and fled in the neighborhood of Sharawnah at 12:35 p.m., the military said in a statement.
Later in the day, an Army checkpoint in the same area came under fire which slightly wounded three soldiers and prompted the military to respond.
An Army unit raided several locations and apprehended a number of the shooters. It also confiscated stolen vehicles and an unspecified amount of drugs.
