At least two dead and eight wounded in an armed conflict south of Beirut

In an armed conflict south of Beirut, the capital of the country, at least two people died and eight others were injured that Thursday afternoon.

As security forces reported to the An Nahar newspaper, the shooting was the result of a confrontation between members of the Lebanese militia Hezbollah (Shiites) and a group of Sunnis.

For example, it was stated that the confrontation came after several Hezbollah supporters tried to hang a religious poster in the Jaldé area, 12 kilometers from Beirut, causing the anger of several residents in support of Sunni cleric Omar Ghosn.
