A driver was injured on Monday when several Syrian trucks came under fire in the northern city of Tripoli, the state-run National News Agency reported.
NNA said Zakaria al-Basha, one of the drivers, was wounded in the dawn shooting that took place while his truck was passing under the pedestrian bridge in Tripoli's al-Tabbaneh area.
But the driver continued his way and reached al-Mina where the Red Cross took him to al-Salam hospital, the agency added.
The trucks were transporting phosphate.
Syria-bound trucks have come under attack in recent months mainly in Bab al-Tabbaneh, where residents staunchly support the uprising in the neighboring country.
Earlier this year, residents blocked the international highway in the northern town of Arida to prevent fuel tanker trucks from crossing into Syria.
The protesters argue that the fuel is destined to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad to kill the Syrian people.
