A shooting hit the convoy of Minister al-Gharib in the town of Qabr Chamoun, killing two of his bodyguards.

 

Sources had also informed LBCI that Minister Bassil decided to cancel his visit to Kfarmatta after the tension erupted in the region.

 

However, PSP sources had said that the shooting took place when young men were removing burned tires from the region of al-Chahar, adding that al-Gharib’s convoy passed through and the bodyguards opened fire.
