Former MP Mustafa Alloush accused supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad of opening fire on his house in the northern city of Tripoli at dawn Saturday.
In remarks to Voice of Lebanon radio station (93.3), Alloush said that a group of armed men began cursing outside his home and shouting pro-Assad slogans around 1:00 am.
They then opened fire at the house, the Mustaqbal movement official said, stressing that he wasn’t there when the incident took place.
“The shabeeha (armed thugs) in Lebanon want to say that those who support the Syrian people will be shut up,” Alloush said.
The incident happened after tents were erected in Tripoli to gather financial and blood donations to the Syrian refugees and injured in Lebanon.
Thousands of refugees have fled to Lebanon as the state cracks down on a popular revolt against the Assad regime, now in its tenth month.
