One Soldier, Militant Killed in Armed Clashes in Tripoli

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Militants resisting arrest by the Lebanese army in the restive Tripoli neighbourhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh sparked clashes that killed one on each side, a statement said on Monday.

The violence broke out late on Sunday when the army entered the Sunni stronghold with the aim of arresting wanted militants.

"One soldier was killed and several others wounded" when the unit was targeted by militants, the army said, adding that hand grenades were used against its men.

The army said "one terrorist" was killed and his brother arrested. Weapons and ammunition were also seized.

Lebanon's second city has been directly affected by the violence raging in neighbouring Syria, where the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, who is from the Alawite minority, has been battling mostly Sunni groups since 2011.

Recurring clashes pitting residents from Bab al-Tabbaneh against those of Jabal Mohsen, an adjacent and mostly Alawite neighbourhood, led the army to deploy in the area in 2014.

Tripoli is the city of "Real Lebanese" and they love the Lebanese army so much they claimed.

That city is filled with Da3ish Nusra scum and must be cleansed.

There are 500.000 shia terrorists and around 1000 sunni terrorists, the LAF decides to pick on the easy target because it is biased and taking its orders from Iran.
