A suspect who shot at an Army unit in the northern region of Qammoua this week committed suicide rather than face the shame brought by family members calling for his arrest, a relative told The Daily Star. The ambush occurred late Tuesday and involved two suspects later identified as Ali Hussein Taleb and Baraa al-Kik. The two allegedly attacked a military unit in the region, shooting and killing two soldiers, Lt. Joe Farfour, 22, and Sgt. The mayor of the town of Fnaydeq, Khaldoun Taleb, had condemned the attack and admitted that his nephew Ali was behind the ambush. Once, Ali too was among its ranks.
