Two people were injured Monday in the northern border region of Wadi Khaled in a clash linked to the municipal polls that were held last month, state-run National News Agency reported.
"Nasser al-Youssef, 22, and the Syrian boy Khaled Rahil, 12, were wounded when a dispute between the al-Youssef and Hammoud families erupted into gunfire in the Wadi Khaled area of al-Mahatta," NNA said.
"The clash is linked to the municipal elections," the agency added.
An army force intervened to restore calm and cracked down on the houses of several residents suspected of being involved in firing weapons in the town of al-Knaisseh and its surroundings, NNA said.
