Unknown assailants torched the parked vehicle of the municipal chief of the Metn town of Dekwaneh, Antoine Shakhtoura, outside his house at dawn Wednesday, the National News Agency reported.
NNA said that cameras installed in the area showed two men throwing a combustible material on the vehicle shortly after Shakhtoura’s arrival at his house.
The car immediately went up in flames, it added.
“If this was a political message, then it was unacceptable,” Shakhtoura told Voice of Lebanon (93.3). “And if it was because of my performance as head of municipality, then no one can prevent me from continuing from work because everyone knows my performance in the municipality and in fighting crime.”
“I was most probably monitored by four or five people to carry out the operation,” he said.
Shakhtoura urged the Internal Security Forces to arrest the culprits, saying he already filed a lawsuit.
