Army Raids in Tripoli in Search of Deadly Clash Fugitive
The army carried out intensive raids Sunday in Tripoli's al-Qobbeh neighborhood in search of a fugitive who took part in a deadly clash with troops earlier this week, media reports said.
“The army encircled the street where the raids took place, deploying units on the rooftops of neighboring buildings,” LBCI television reported.
Troops were searching a building after the army obtained information about the presence of the fugitive Khaled Hmeidan, who took part in shooting against soldiers in Tripoli several days ago, the TV network added.
A soldier was killed and several others were wounded in Tuesday's clash with a number of fugitives in Tripoli's al-Tal area.
