The ISF said that at around 11 p.m. Saturday night, Musawi's daughters, Ghadir and Faiza, were blocked on the Beirut-Sidon highway at Damour by the former's ex-husband, Hasan al-Mokdad, who then allegedly got out of his car and attempted to attack them because of a dispute over child visitation rights.The Mokdad family denied to local media that Musawi's former son-in-law had been following his ex-wife, instead claiming that he had met them on the road.Shortly after the police finished collecting the statements, four men entered the station and allegedly attacked Mokdad, wounding him in the leg with a screwdriver.The memo claimed that Musawi arrived after that, accompanied by 20 armed men.Reports circulated on some local media outlets that it was Musawi himself who had opened fire on Mokdad.The Daily Star could not reach Musawi for comment.
