TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Two Alawite men were shot Wednesday in the Kandarjiyeh Souk in the northern city of Tripoli.

Unidentified gunmen opened fire on Omran Fazah and his son Saleh, wounding them in the legs.

Two passerby, Khaled Iali and Jihad Omran, were also lightly wounded.

According to local residents, the father owns a shop in the Souk and pays protection money to a local militia to keep his business safe.

He ususally faces no problems in the Souk and the attack is likely linked to sectarian tensions, the residents said.

Tripoli has witnessed over a dozen rounds of clashes between Alawites and Sunnis linked to the Syrian crisis.
