beirutgunfirecelebratoryThe Internal Security Forces on Sunday announced the arrest of nine people, after Sidon resident Wadiha al-Baidawi was killed Friday by celebratory gunfire while watching a wedding from the window of her apartment in Sidon.

The 19-year-old woman was killed after being hit by a bullet to the head, the ISF said in a statement. The arrested men are five Lebanese and a Palestinian, the ISF stated.

“Following investigations, members of the Sidon police station in coordination with the Intelligence Bureau arrested Saturday six people who had fired weapons during the wedding,” it added.

It added that the army’s intelligence branch in the South handed the Sidon police station three people – two Lebanese and a Palestinian — who were also involved in the shooting.

“A pistol and two pump-action rifles in addition to the gunshot that hit the woman and four bullet shells have been seized,” the ISF announced.

“Following investigations, it turned out that the Palestinian M. A. and the Lebanese H. W. were not involved in the shooting and they were released while the others were kept in custody and investigations are underway under the supervision of the relevant judicial authorities,” it added.

    First rule of handling firearms, Don’t give a donkey a weapon. This rule if followed will change the face of the entire region for the better.

      Friend of mine had just left her kitchen when a ‘celebration bullet’ came through the window a couple of years ago. Another was wounded in the neck and almost lost his life while sitting in his living-room about 6 years ago. The stats – if actually collected and published – would scare anyone out of visiting the country … which is maybe why they don’t do the stats.
      There’s an incredible amount of donkeys in the Middle East.

    Weapons in the hands of people are ALWAYS destructive et dangerous, no matter what the reason. Weapons should ALWAYS be in the hands of the Police and Army ONLY. This phenomenon and many similar others will re-occur without any doubt.

    This is why civlians should not carry or use any weapons. Yet again another innocent persond dies and for what?? Because of someone that is irresponsible and clearly does not know how to use a gun.

    Idiocy at its best. What do these idiots get out of firing into the air to celebrate! Once again, if they were educated, they would have known that “What goes up, must come down”, or at least the theory of gravity would have been handy. Stupid C#nts!

      Can’t do firecrackers … they would blow their own hands off.
