HERMEL, Lebanon: A Syrian suspect was killed Wednesday and his Lebanese companion arrested after a car chase in the Bekaa Valley which ended in an exchange of gunfire, a security source told The Daily Star on condition of anonymity.

Ibrahim Muaileq died of his wounds in hospital, while Omar Ahmad Solh was detained as he receivedmedical treatment. A third suspect, Ahmad Saleh, escaped.

The source said the three men were suspected of providing assistance to armed groups that were “plotting attacks to undermine Lebanon’s stability.”

Army Intelligence pursued the men, who were driving two cars along the highway linking Chtaura to Bar Elias. The cars separated at the Al-Marj exit, and Muaileq and Solh were taken to hospital by the Army after crashing and exchanging fire with soldiers. Saleh remains at large.
