Lebanon’s Army detained at least three suspects Thursday morning for cheering and opening fire in the air after the re-election of Syrian President Bashar Assad, security sources told The Daily Star.
Some of the detainees are from the Jajieh and Dabab families. Some are are also wanted suspects by the authorities for previous violations in the northern city, the sources said.
The Army also raided the house of Mahmoud Aboushi in Tripoli's Bab al-Tabbaneh neighborhood for tossing a hand grenade in the Jabal Mohsen area Wednesday night.
Syria-linked intermittent clashes that had plagued the northern city for years came to a halt in April as the security forces enacted a new security plan to end the violence in Tripoli.
