Army Raids Akkar Town in Search for Shooting Suspects

The Lebanese army carried out raids in a town in the northern district of Akkar on Sunday in search for suspects involved in a deadly shooting, the state-run National News Agency reported.

NNA said a military unit was searching in Talbibeh for suspects with links to the shooting that left one person dead and five others injured.

The agency said Saturday that Yehia al-Saeed, from Talbibeh, was killed, and five members of his family were wounded in a clash with the Hussein family that hails from al-Sammaqieh village.

The fighting was the result of a long-simmering dispute between the two families, NNA said.
