A soldier was seriously injured and a wanted man was killed in an exchange of fire in the area of al-Zaaytrieh in the North Metn town of Fanar, the Lebanese army announced on Wednesday.

The soldier was wounded when an army patrol came under fire by wanted armed men riding a Kia on Tuesday night, said a communique issued by the military command.

The troops responded to the sources of fire, injuring one of the gunmen. But Ali Saad Zoaiter, who was taken to hospital, later succumbed to his wounds.

The soldiers seized guns, ammunition and drugs from the car but the gunmen managed to escape, said the communique.

The army is currently pursuing the suspects to arrest them and refer them to the judiciary, it added.

In a separate communique, the army said it has arrested Syrian Hassan Mohammed Daqqou in the area of Drouss in the eastern district of Baalbek for having ties with terrorist organizations.

A military patrol seized drugs from his house.

The communique added that troops have also apprehended 55 people for entering the country illegally.

A glowing testimony to the noble resistance and its practices on the streets of beirut as it sacrifices its best men in order to protect the minorities and support the army.

Sayyed Hassin said he represents the Shi2as, he calls them his bi2at al 7adina. The remaining 1% are shee3at al safarat. It all packaged neatly by Sayyed al Moukawama based on messages he get's from God via Tehran's Supreme one. Get with the program mowaten dawa2esh.

What??? What are you on mouwaten? You should have listened to Sayyed Hassin, he always told you his bi2at al 7adina "sunflower" dealers; sow it, grow it, harvest it, cook it, sell it, deal it, but don't use it... that is unless you get it from one of our official dispensers near you, managed by the Fneshes or Moussawis, they are halal.

Good job by our security forces, now get ready for the chorus of "moderate m8 iranians" whining about shia being persecuted and what not.

Guys you cannot blame Hezballah for settling thousends of these in the region. They just provided them with the means and the funds to help them settle because baalbek and south lebanon were becoming overcrowded. The typical nuclear family over there consisted of at least 33 souls. Look at hadath, now completely surrounded by new settlements full of new settlers, the over flow had to be settled elsewhere and jbeilis were beginning to push back. So the metn was chosen for its proximity and initially cheap land.
