Tripoli clashes injure
security forces members

The Army Command announced that a number of army soldiers and Internal Security Forces members were targeted on Monday by gunfire in Tripoli’s Al-Malloula, which resulted in the injury five of them.

 

The statement explained that the members who were wounded were headed in their civilian cars to their work when a number of gunmen fired at them.

 

It added that three other security forces members suffered bruises after they had a car accident, without providing further details.

 

The injured soldiers were transferred to the hospital for treatment, and army units started raiding a number of suspicious locations in an attempt to locate and apprehend the armed men.

 

Sectarian clashes renewed Sunday in Tripoli between the rival neighborhoods of Sunni-majority Bab al-Tebbaneh and Alawite-populated Jabal Mohsen, resulting in the killing of five people.

 

The latest confrontations come after a brief lull in the violence between the two sides, after a flare-up last month that left 31 people dead and more than 200 wounded.

 

The violence is tied to the conflict in Syria, where a Sunni-led uprising is fighting to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, an Alawite.
