Two men wanted on several charges were wounded on Saturday in an exchange of gunfire with an army patrol in Bekaa's Baalbeck city, the state-run National News Agency reported.

“The gunfire exchange took place when the army was trying to arrest the suspects,” it detailed, noting that they are allegedly wanted in several cases, among them kidnapping incidents.

"They were involved in the shooting at a general security patrol in Bekaa's Shtoura region earlier in March”.

Meanwhile, LBCI television identified the men as Mohammed Ismael Choucair and Abbas Choucair.

“They were wounded in an exchange of gunfire in Baalbeck's al-Sharawina area,” it remarked.

Both men were transferred to a hospital in the area for treatment, and NNA said one of them is in a critical condition.

A General Security first sergeant was killed on March 12 and three security personnel were wounded while chasing a fugitive in Shtoura.

MTV said the incident happened near the Ramia hunting rifles store where a security patrol came under gunfire.

A statement issued by the General Directorate of General Security said one of its patrols “came under gunfire while passing on the main road in the Shtoura area, which resulted in the martyrdom of Third Inspector Michel Maalouf and the wounding of two other members”.

Ashraf Al Nass, we are so lucky, we have Hezb iranian mehdi terrorists on a military level intimating & assassinating members of parliament, and on the street we have the hezb mehdi gangster thugs intimidating our children, bashing our children, abusing our girls & shooting at our army, See they do this ONLY because their sect gives them a powerful hezb umbrella, hezb weapons must be confronted.

Just shoot them, maim or kill them, and make sure that any other future kidnappers know that the army is serious. Screw these guys

Slowly but surely the Circus is loosing its grips on its street dopers and gangs. In parrallel the army is gaining more respect from the people but sadly at a price. Every soldier that gets killed is the value of 50 Hizballah wacko out there as the Lebanese soldier dies for Lebanese soil while the terrorist dies for Iran. God help the Lebanese army fighting evil.
