Shots fired in front of MP Alloush’s home in Tripoli


alloush mustafa 4New TV reported  that an unknown assailant    fired shots from a military weapon in an unknown car in front of the home of former MP Mustafa Alloush in Tripoli.

Dr Alloush is  a key member of the  March 14 alliance .

Lebanon has been witnessing for several months a wave of assassinations starting with the attempted assassination of Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea last April, the attempted assassination of MP Boutros Harb, the assassination of Lebanon Internal Security intelligence chief Wissam al Hassan who was killed last October and several threats of assassinations against several figures including March 14 MP Marwan Hamadeh and Mufti Shaar of Tripoli.

Hezbollah has been accused of being behind some of these threats. The person behind the attempted assassination of MP Harb , Mahmoud al-Hayek has been identified as a Hezbollah member and an arrest warrant has been issued against him but Hezbollah refuses to hand him over to the judicial authorities just like they refused to hand over the four killers of former PM Hariri.
