Syrian kills compatriot in Burj Hammoud.
BEIRUT: A Syrian national was stabbed to death after a dispute with a countryman in Burj Hammoud Thursday, the National News Agency reported.
A man identified as Mustafa Kh. stabbed Mohammad H. and fled the scene. Separately, the Bek Investigation Unit arrested two men, identified as Fadi D. and Ahmad R., for fraud and selling illegal weapons. According to the NNA, the two were referred to the relevant authorities.
Separately, the Internal Security Forces arrested two Lebanese men for theft and fraud, it said Thursday. A statement from the ISF General Directorate said that members of the judicial police of Beirut's southern suburbs arrested 30-year-old A.R. and 39-year-old A.T. after raiding their houses on Airport Road. It said the move came after security forces received information on fraud in Mount Lebanon.
"When investigated, they confessed that they used to buy products from commercial firms and present stolen or forged checks. It turned out that they have eight outstanding search and arrest warrants for forgery, theft, impersonating, passing bad checks and opening fire," the statement added.
The ISF confiscated a pistol and a bad check in their possession. The ISF General Directorate published the photos of the two perpetrators and asked those who have fallen victim to their crimes to visit the judicial police's Ouzai headquarters or call 01-842-403 or 01-842-405.
