Parking is a deadly business in Lebanon


A Lebanese man, identified as Nafez Tarabay, reportedly killed his brother, Kanaan, in the Jbeil town of Blat after the two men quarreled over a parking space, The National News Agency (NNA) reported Friday.

Nafez Tarabay fled the scene, said NNA, adding that an investigation is underway.

This development comes after a bloody street battle that shook the Borj Abi Haidar neighborhood in the Lebanese capital on August 24, pitting supporters of the Iranian backed Hezbollah against the pro-Syrian Al-Ahbash militants —also known as the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects. 3 people were killed in the clash including a Hezbollah senior official.

The Hezbollah- Al-Ahbash fighting which was sparked by a dispute over a parking space quickly developed into street battles with machine gun fire and rocket-propelled grenades.”
