Two armed individuals on a motorcycle opened fire on the residence of Lieutenant Hussein al-Qaq, an assistant to the director of Zahle prison, in Sefri near Baalbeck late Thursday night, according to a security source.
The incident did not result in any casualties, but significant material damage was sustained.
The assailants fired twenty rounds from an automatic rifle, primarily targeting two parked cars in front of the official's house, added the security source.
The motive behind the attack is still unclear.
Authorities and security forces have launched an investigation into the shooting.
