Lassa Residents Prevent Security Forces from Removing Construction Violation
Residents in the town of Lassa prevented on Friday security forces from removing a construction violation belonging to Mohammed Daher al-Moqdad reported the National News Agency.
Residents blocked road, preventing the security forces from reaching the property, and they then fired gun shots in the air to thwart them from entering the town.
The security forces were forced to leave the town without removing the violation.
Property disputes erupted in Lassa a few weeks ago when Hizbullah members prevented a Maronite League team from surveying land owned by the Maronite Patriarchate in the predominantly Shiite town of Lassa in the Jbeil District.
They also came after members of the same party prevented an MTV crew from filming a report on the issue in the town.
