Free Sunnis claim responsibility for rocket attack


The Free Sunnis of Baalbek Brigades claimed responsibility for the rocket fire on Beqaa’s Beit Shama on Wednesday, saying the attack was in retaliation to the death of a Sunni protester in a protest in Beirut’s Qasaq the day before.

“This operation was in retaliation to the death of the young man Hussam Shawa, who was killed during a protest in solidarity with Arsal in Qasqas,” the little known group said on their Twitter account on Wednesday.

Earlier on Wednesday, two rockets fired from the Anti-Lebanon mountain range along the border with Syria hit vineyards in the central Beqaa area of Al-Aqeediyeh close to the town of Beit Shama.

Shawa suffered fatal wounds when the Lebanese army on Tuesday night opened fire in the air and shot tear gas canisters to disperse a protest in Beirut’s Qasqas, one of a wave of protests held by Sunnis in support of Arsal, which has been cut-off from the Beqaa’s main highway by protesters in neighboring Shiite-populated Labweh.
