A member of Speaker Nabih Berri’s AMAL Movement was wounded on Friday when a personal dispute erupted into gunfire in the Beirut district of Zaidaniyeh.
“One AMAL member was wounded in the Zaidaniyeh clash and AMAL gunmen have left the area after a brief deployment,” an AMAL official told Naharnet, requesting anonymity.
While the official did not reveal the identity of the other party, Future News television reported that “the clash in Zaidaniyeh erupted after a dispute between two Hizbullah and AMAL supporters.”
LBC television said army troops deployed to the area in a bid to contain the clash which erupted in “al-Itani street in the Zaidaniyeh-Aisha Bakkar area.”
MTV, for its part, said gunmen deployed in Zaidaniyeh “after two people were wounded in an exchange of gunfire.”
