Clashes erupted in Tripoli during the morning rush hour Wednesday and continued into the evening as The Daily Star went to press, despite efforts by the Army and security forces to restore order.The fighting erupted earlier when Radwan al-Qari, from Bab al-Tabbaneh, shot Basel Hatwik from Jabal Mohsen in the arm and back at around 10 a.m., severely wounding him.However, dozens of fighters from Mankoubin blocked the road in their neighborhood following the arrest of Qari by the Army, while shop owners in the wheat and vegetable markets closed early fearing further deterioration of the security situation, despite the strict measures enforced by both the Army and the Internal Security Forces.
