BEKAA: A Lebanese man was wounded by gunfire from the Syrian side of the border Monday while he was skiing on Mount Hermon, security sources told The Daily Star.

Antoine Hajj, 40, was skiing on Jabal al-Sheikh, southeast Lebanon, with a group of people when a gunshot struck him in the shoulder.

He was immediately transported by the Lebanese Red Cross to a nearby hospital in Rashaya.

Mount Hermon on the Lebanese-syrian frontier also borders the edge of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
