The killing of Hezbollah’s militant was a result of a ‘revenge case’, according to the Arab tribes of Khaldeh which issued a statement on Saturday explaining the incident.

The Lebanese army has worked to reinforce its presence in the south of Beirut to control the situation and stop the clashes in the area, local media reported.

The tribes of Arab Khaldeh, to which the perpetrator belongs to, issued a statement in which they said: “We are the Arab clans in Lebanon. It is in the traditions of our Arabs to take the rebellion if there is no reconciliation between the two quarrels, and what happened today with the killing of Ali Shibli is nothing but revenge.”

“Therefore, we wish the family of the murdered Ali Shibli to consider the killing an eye for an eye, and not to exceed that, and that we are all keen to preserve civil peace, the right of neighborhood and national participation,” the statement added.
