ISF vows to bring killers of sergeant to justice
A+ A-

BAALBEK, Lebanon: Internal Security Forces Brig. Asaad Tufeili vowed that they would not rest before the killers of Sgt. Ali Nasrallah were brought to justice. Nasrallah, who was killed during an altercation with the Jaafar clan last week, was laid to rest in his hometown of Shmestar in the Baalbek region over the weekend. Nasrallah was killed and his colleague Mohammad Ibrahim Hsheish was wounded when their patrol was ambushed in Lebanon’s eastern city of Baalbek. The funeral was attended by the head of judicial police Brig. Naji al-Masri. The judicial police patrol was taken by surprise by armed members of the Jaafar clan after it raided the Al-Sharawneh neighborhood and detained two of the clan’s members, Hasan Nazih Jaafar and Mohammad Ahmad Jaafar. The Al-Sharawneh neighborhood is known to be mostly inhabited by the Jaafar clan and sometimes serves as a refuge for fugitives from justice.
