3 Sons of ex-MP Yaaqoub Arrested in Bednayel


Three sons of controversial ex-MP Hassan Yaaqoub were arrested Thursday in the Baalbek district town of Bednayel.

The National News Agency said an army patrol apprehended the trio at their home, seizing weapons and amunition.

The development comes after a verbal dispute between ex-MP Yaaqoub and Bednayel mayor Ali Jawad Suleiman escalated into gunfire.

The dispute was linked to the removal of a construction violation on land owned by Yaaqoub, which resulted in the wounding of a Syrian man.

The patrol also raided the house of a man from the Suleiman family without finding him.

The law of the jungle may be a common thing among Shia people, but one can’t do anything he wants with his property. I wanted to build a school for refugees made out of containers , The decision was vetoed by the municipality and Hariri. Some people want to add floors to their houses, it does represent a risk for all the inhabitants ... because the foundations aren’t able to handle additional weight and so on.
