BEIRUT: Security forces are still demanding that the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) hand over a fourth man they claim attacked their personnel Thursday night, security sources told The Daily Star Saturday.

The SSNP has so far handed over three men, including two identified as Ramzi Abdou and Mahmoud Awwad.

On Friday, Internal Security Forces (ISF) Information Branch surrounded the party's office, demanding the handover of assailants who attacked at least one member of a five-man ISF patrol Thursday night and stole his weapon.

The assailants reportedly hid in the SSNP offices in Hamra for protection. The party returned the stolen gun to the ISF Friday.

The SSNP repeatedly denied Friday that the party had any connection to the incident with the security forces, saying that the party is not in conflict with the ISF.

“There is no problem at all with the security forces ... none of the party's offices or branches has been surrounded,” the media office said in a statement Friday.

It added that the “the individual incident” is being resolved in a calm manner, saying: “We hope the media are precise and do not exaggerate things.”
