Gunmen kill Hezbollah supporter in Tripoli, Lebanon

Share:

Hassan Al Mouri hezbollah supporterMasked gunmen shot dead a Hezbollah supporter and two other men, including a member of the security forces, in the Lebanese city of Tripoli early Thursday, a security official said.

“Masked men on motorbikes shot dead Hassan Al Mouri, a security official and a third man who happened to be at the scene,” the official said.

Mouri was a known supporter of Hezbollah, a key ally of Syria’s President Bashar Al Assad, and has been target of previous assassination attempts. He headed an armed group in the northern city which last year clashed with militiamen opposed to Hezbollah and Al Assad’s regime.

The majority of residents of the port city support the 29-month anti-Al Assad rebellion in neighbouring Syria, and resent Hezbollah’s decision to send fighters to support the army there. Mouri, who was in his 40s, and the two other men were standing at the entrance to his home when the gunmen drove up and shot them, the official said. “The army has deployed in the Zahraniyeh district” in central Tripoli, near Mouri’s home, the official said.

Waves of deadly clashes

Tripoi has seen frequent Syria-related violence over the past two years, including waves of deadly clashes.

Though Lebanon is officially neutral in Syria’s conflict, the country is deeply divided, with Hezbollah and its allies backing Al Assad and the opposition supporting the rebels.

Hezbollah’s deployment of troops to support the Syrian army took tensions in Lebanon to new heights, particularly after fighters from the powerful Shiite movement helped Al Assad’s regime reclaim the former Syrian rebel bastion of Qusayr in June.

    Even when they fight among themselves they kill innocent bystanders. Care for NO-ONE.
    Best thing to do is get close to NONE of them.
