Jabal Mohsen and Bab al-Tabbaneh targeted by three Energa grenades after first day of violence

NOW’s correspondent in the North reported on Thursday that unidentified assailants targeted Jabal Mohsen with two Energa grenades, generating property loss, a day after a similar attack on nearby al-Achkar coffee shop led to injury of eight people.

Following the attack, residents of Jabal Mohsen took to the streets to protest the recurrence of such incidents in their region, which prompted the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) to deploy intensively and launch patrols.

According to the National News Agency , the violence was followed by the explosion of two hand grenades on Haret al-Saydeh and near the Imam Ali mosque as well as by an Energa Grenade on Souk al-Qameh in the Bab al-Tabbaneh neighborhood. LAF units were placed on high alert.
