BEIRUT — Four people suffered stab wounds during a fight in the town of Beit Zud in Dinnieh, North Lebanon, the state-run National News Agency reported Sunday.
The dispute started on Saturday and renewed on Sunday, the NNA reported.
According to our correspondent in North Lebanon, the dispute is allegedly an ongoing one linked to land ownership, and fighting in relation to it has broken our multiple times in the past.
Emergency workers transferred the injured to the Sir Denniye Governmental Hospital to receive immediate treatment. The injured were later moved, due to the severity of their injuries, to the Tripoli Governmental Hospital, the Islamic Charitable Hospital in Tripoli and Al-Sayeda Hospital in Zgharta for further treatment. One of the victims has been admitted to the intensive care unit.
The security forces opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fight.
In September, caretaker Interior Minister Bassam Mawlawi announced that a "sustainable" security plan had been devised for North Lebanon; however, this plan has failed to prevent security incidents.
