Gas station owner injured in a clash over fuel-filling priority in al-Abdeh

A clash over priority in filling the gas tank of one of the vehicles at al-Masry petrol station in the area of al-Abdeh in Akkar led to open fire on Sunday morning, which resulted in the station owner’s leg injury.

The owner was transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment while a joint patrol of the army and security services arrived at the scene, initiating investigation into the incident and tracking down the shooter who managed to escape.
