Fugitive Killed in Clash with Army in al-Taybeh


A fugitive was killed Tuesday in an exchange of gunfire with the army in the Baalbek area of al-Taybeh, the military said in a statement.

It said troops opened fire at the plateless SUV of the fugitive, Hussein Ali Sawwan, after he failed to stop at a checkpoint and tried to run over one of the soldiers.

Sawwan succumbed to his injuries at a hospital in the region after being wounded in the shooting, the army added.

It noted that the man had been sentenced to hard labor on charges of murdering a person and that he was wanted on multiple arrest warrants.

“A Kalashnikov machinegun and a quantity of ammunition were seized from his car and Military Police has launched a probe into the incident,” the army said.

Unlike you and your takfiri terrorists, we don't support them nor whine about the army doing what needs to be done. Good work LAF.

يُقيم "حزب الله" حواجز ليلية عند مداخل قرى بقاعية وجنوبية خلال إحيائه أمسيات عاشورائية خوفاً من أعمال إرهابية تطال تجمّعاته.

استدعاءات تمّت لمئات الشبان الزحلاويين على خلفية إطلاقهم النار خلال مناسبة تشييع الزعيم الياس سكاف، في حين لم يجرِ استدعاء أي من عناصر «حزب الله» الذين يطلقون النار في الضاحية الجنوبية ومناطق أخرى خلال تشييع مقاتلي الحزب الذين يسقطون في سوريا.
