Violence in Lebanon’s North kills 3, wounds 34 so far

The Lebanese army fortified its posts and deployed heavily Friday in various areas in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, mainly in Syria Street that separates the rival districts of Bab al-Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen, the state-run National News Agency reported.

On Thursday, a child was killed and several people were wounded in the clashes that erupted in Tripoli after a man succumbed to his wounds that he sustained during a shooting in the morning.

The NNA said that sporadic sniper gunfire injured two other people on Friday, which increased the number of wounded to 34 and upped the death toll to 3 after Asma Horooq died of her wounds in the governmental hospital in the city.

Local media outlets stated that Arab Democratic Party announced ceasefire and kicked off negotiations with the families of the victims who were killed in Tripoli’s twin blasts in August to restore calm in the area.

Media reports said that the military also arrested four gunmen, including a Syrian national, in al-Qobbeh area.

The army earlier said in a communique that the measures carried out by its units in Tripoli decreased tension between the rival neighborhoods of Bab al-Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen despite the ongoing sectarian and political incitement.

Tripoli’s frequent clashes between residents of the Jabal Mohsen district and those in the neighboring Bab al-Tabbaneh dates back to Lebanon’s 1975-1990 civil war.
