Clashes erupted on Sunday in al-Sharawneh neighborhood in the Bekaa city of Baalbek as the army sought to arrest a wanted suspect, reported the National News Agency.

It said that the clashes ensued as the army cordoned off overnight the Sun Palace restaurant where a dangerous suspect was staying.

The clashes broke out between the army and gunmen from the Jaafar family.

Heavy weapons were used in the fighting.

Clashes frequently erupt between the army and wanted gunmen in various regions in Lebanon, especially in al-Sharawneh neighborhood.

In October, State Commissioner to the Military Court Judge Saqr Saqr launched an investigation into a shooting at the army in Baalbek that took place earlier that month.

Three soldiers were lightly injured during the incident when a military checkpoint came under fire at the entrance of al-Sharawneh neighborhood.
