The mayor of Kahaleh announced later that a “large team infiltrated the region” and killed Bejjani.
“We want to know the motive behind this crime,” he demanded, adding that Bejjani was loved by many and had no personal issues with anyone.
The mayor called for a swift investigation that will reveal the motives of the crime within 48 hours maximum, otherwise they will take radical measures, such as blocking the roads for more than an hour.
According to local media, protesters have already started blocking the Kahaleh highway in response.
