The army has deployed heavily in the Chouf town of Baqaata after clashes between Progressive Socialist Party and Arab Tawhid Party supporters left one dead and two people wounded on Saturday.

Jad al-Beaini died from injuries he sustained during Saturday's clash, reported LBCI television.

The three wounded were shot in the legs, reported the National News Agency.

The PSP, headed by MP Walid Jumblat, said in a statement: “The clash is an individual one and does not have any political or factional links.”

“The shooter has been handed over to the concerned authorities in order for the law to take its course in this case,” it added.

“Internal stability is a principle that the PSP is committed to now more than ever and it will not accept that it be harmed under any circumstance,” it concluded.

For its part, the Arab Tawhid Party, of former minister Wiam Wahhab, explained in a statement that the clash initially started as an individual dispute between Marwan al-Ashqar and Kifah Hani, the owner of a restaurant in Baqaata.

“A PSP security official, Ayman al-Fatayri, who has nothing to do with the dispute, soon intervened by shooting at Hani, soldier Jad al-Beaini, and Arab Tawhid Party member Bashar al-Beaini,” it added.

The shooter soon fled to the town of al-Moukhtara, it revealed.

“The Arab Tawhid Party is keen on the security of Mount Lebanon and calls on all sides to refrain from retaliating to the clash,” it said.

Interesting "jumblatdedon" . A clash by 2 sectarian Druze factions and you make anti Shiite bigoted rhetoric.Let me guess that you are not a Druze? It seems that the Zionists and their puppets are always targeting HA and the Shiite. I wonder Why?

Hizballah on the other hand does not hand over any of its criminals. Instead they shoot at police officers who dare enter thier drug laden lare.

Guess what, now we are allies & we have moved on, unlike the shia who are the only people that cheated the TAAEF accord by not disarming, the war never ended, & i promise you the shia are bringing the war back, i have read up you people, historical traitors, even salahdeen made you all live in the coast cause you traitors would sell information to the crusaders of inland movements, it was the shia who betray hussain in KUFA, i see a common pattern with you people.

jumblatdedon,

quick question brother, if you beat the hell out of the hezb boys during may 7,why did jumblatt call berry and tell him to tell sayed Hassan he wins,and whatever he wants he will get, that doesn't make sense,first time in history I hear the winning team give in to the so called aggressor,and if the warriors of the chouf are so tough than why are you so afraid of hezb and its weapons,you guys seem pretty confident you can handle these men,but from what I heard it was the hezb boyscouts that came to the mountains,and you guys beheaded 2 of them and split there bodies like animals,the hezb decided to send in its big boy unit,and that's where the druze leade by jumblatt panicked,which lead jumblatt to call berrie and concede,please brother don't talk tough behind the screen and make up stories,the us and Israel couldn't defeat hezb,dont think a rag tag bunch from the mountains would last an hour or so on there best day,the Lebanese bravado sometimes makes me laugh.

i cannot believe all of you. Today a lebanese family lost a son and another is in intensive care. Instead of fighting you should find a way of this not happening again. Today its Jad Beaini tomorrow your brother or sister.

Thank you cedartree for being the voice of reason. A simple incident that should have been admonished by all ended up stirring all sort of sectarian and personal insults. Folks, a crime took place, the perpetrator was handed over and should receive his just punishment. We need to disarm all individuals and all parties (NO EXCEPTIONS).... end of story.
