Lebanon: Five dead in East Lebanon clashes

23rd Dec 2013

Five people were killed and several others wounded in East Lebanon during weekend gun battles between neighbors, a security source told Al-Akhbar on Sunday.

Off-duty army soldier Mohammed Sa’id Janbeen and his uncle Faraj were killed on Saturday in clashes with the Shouman family in the Bekaa town of Souairi, with the army arresting three suspects over the killings.

But clashes reignited on Sunday between the families, leading to the deaths of brothers Khaled and Ahmad Ali Janbeen, and Ali Youssef Shouman, after nine houses belonging to the Shouman family were set ablaze by “unknown” assailants.

At least 10 others were wounded in the weekend clashes.

The source added that the two families have a history of conflict, but that the region’s worsening sectarian tensions and the war in Syria have exacerbated the feud.

The army said it discovered a Kalashnikov rifle and ammunition inside a vehicle belonging to one of the suspected gunmen.
