Security Forces Patrol Attacked for Removing Construction Violation in Baalbek

Unknown assailants opened fire on Friday at a security forces patrol as it attempted to remove a construction violation in the eastern Bekaa region of Baalbek, reported MTV.

It said that the patrol was attacked by passengers riding a Mercedes ML vehicle as it sought to remove the violation.

It was seeking to thwart the construction of an illegal floor in a building owned by Mustapha Yaghi.

The patrol was forced to withdraw from the scene following the attack.

The General Prosecution has since ordered Yaghi's arrest and demanded that the identity of the assailants be uncovered.

Security forces frequently come under attack while attempting to remove construction violations throughout Lebanon.
