A man hurled three hand grenades Monday afternoon near a mosque in Tripoli's al-Zahriyeh area, leaving five people wounded.

“Five people were injured when I. B. threw 3 hand grenades indiscriminately in al-Zahriyeh,” MTV reported.

The Tripoli News Network Facebook page identified the wounded as Samer Jamil Hassoun, Mohannad Kojak, Abdullah Shouman, Hussam Abdul Qader al-Zohbi and Rabih Qabbout.

Several vehicles were also damaged in the incident.

“At once, the army encircled a building in the al-Zahriyeh area to arrest the man who hurled the grenades,” Tripoli News Network said, identifying the assailant as Issa al-Baba.

However, state-run National News Agency later reported that the man jumped off the balcony of his 4th floor apartment in al-Zahriyeh as the army raided the house.

He was rushed to hospital with multiple fractures, according to the agency.
