One soldier and seven people were wounded in a fight between Resistance Brigades and residents of the coastal Chouf village on Tuesday night. 

The armed clashes began with some disputes between the Resistance Brigades, who were exiting a controversial house of prayer on the outskirts Saadiyat, and locals. Sources claim that the prayer house was a cause of tension for at least three weeks now.

The Lebanese Army command stated that “a dispute erupted in Saadiyat area between members affiliated to parties, which developed into a gunfight using light weapons.

"Patrols were conducted and checkpoints were erected in several spots ... and troops are carrying out raids to apprehend those who were involved in the clashes,” concluded the Army.
