Gunmen kill 2 at funeral for Hezbollah commander in Lebanon
At least two people were killed on Sunday south of the Lebanese capital when gunmen opened fire at the funeral of a Hezbollah commander who was killed a day earlier.
The Lebanese military said they deployed in the coastal town of Khaldeh to contain the tension after heavy fire — including from rocket-propelled grenades — terrorized residents and brought traffic to a standstill. The gunmen remain at large.
The military warned it would fire at any source of fire or anyone carrying weapons on the main road.
It said one of its soldiers was injured in the shooting.
The violence is rooted in a personal vendetta.
Lebanese media reported that a man from one of the Sunni Arab tribes of Khaldeh opened fire during a wedding party at a club on Saturday night, killing Ali Chebli, a fighter in Hezbollah.
