Tragically, the attempt by the ISF's Information Branch to bring in Wahhab for questioning was met with barricades and armed men, who opened fire, which resulted in one of Wahhab's men being wounded and later dying.However, rather than try to contain the matter, Wahhab resorted to threats and sought to widen the scope of his showdown to include all of Lebanon by insinuating the man's death would lead to a new civil war, although the other Druze leaders have roundly condemned his behavior.It is not for us to say whether Wahhab is guilty of any wrongdoing.
