A Lebanese man was killed and five others were injured after Syrian troops opened fire on them near the eastern border town of Arsal at dawn Tuesday.
Abdul Ghani al-Jebbawi was shot dead by Syrian soldiers while he was hunting for rabbits at a farm on the Lebanese-Syrian border, Arsal municipal chief Ali al-Hujairi said.
At least five other people were wounded in the attack, the National News Agency reported. It identified three of them as Nayef and Abdullah Audeh, and Hassan al-Jebbawi.
Al-Hujairi told Agence France Presse that the men came under attack inside the Lebanese territories after being “ambushed” by the Syrian troops.
Al-Jebbawi’s body was taken to his hometown of Arsal where he will be laid to rest on Tuesday.
