Lebanese soldier among 8 wounded in north Lebanon clashes
A+ A-

TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Eight people, including a Lebanese soldier, were wounded Wednesday in the north Lebanon city of Tripoli.

The Lebanese soldier was wounded after several shots were fired in the tense neighborhoods of Jabal Mohsen and Bab al-Tabbaneh, security sources told The Daily Star.

The army is investigating the source of the gunfire.

Seven civilians were also wounded after shots were fired from the direction of Jabal Mohsen at a group of Bab al-Tabbaneh residents who gathered on Syria Street, which divides the two tense quarters.

The wounding of the seven occurred at around 3 p.m. when a group of Bab al-Tabbaneh residents gathered in the Sheikh Omran quarter, chanting slogans in support of the Syrian uprising and waving the pre-Baath flag adopted by the Syrian opposition flag. The army attempted to disperse the crowd but soon gunmen from Jabal Mohsen began firing on Syria Street, wounding the six.

An hour later, the army was able to restore order.

The Lebanese Army deployed Tuesday in the city after three days of clashes between the rival neighborhoods that claimed the lives of at least seven and wounded scores more.

In a separate incident in Tripoli, Muzher al-Masoul, a 70-year-old man, died after he was run over by a vehicle in Bab al-Tabbaneh.
