BEIRUT: Six Lebanese and a Palestinian suspect were arrested early Thursday after allegedly beating and stabbing Syrian workers at a Beirut construction site.

 

Security sources told The Daily Star that the group of young men, who used three motorcycles and a four-wheel drive vehicle to storm the construction site in Wata Mossaitbeh, Beirut, shortly after midnight, beat and stabbed six Syrian workers.

 

The injured, some in serious condition, were taken to Rafik Hariri state hospital for treatment, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

 

They said seven suspects – six Lebanese and a Palestinian – were arrested during a police manhunt in the nearby area of Ras al-Nabeh shortly after the attack.

 

Daggers, butcher knives and sharp tools were found on the suspects who were taken to Ramlet al-Baida police station for interrogation, the sources added.
