Gunmen opened fire on army barracks in northern Lebanon early Tuesday, killing one soldier and wounding two others, with the family of the slain soldiers blaming "infidels" for the attack.

The Lebanese army confirmed the attack by "unidentified individuals" on the army barracks in Baddawi, near Tripoli, identifying the soldier who died as Mohammed Khaled Hussein, born in 1988.

The National News Agency (NNA) said that neighbors and friends gathered at Hussein's home in Tripoli to mourn his death.

The report quoted the soldier's sister as saying that the perpetrators who "carried out this act are not Muslims, but a group of infidels."

"We, Muslims, Christians and Druze, live together in unity whether you like it or not, and we will stand in the face of the terrorists and infidels. Those who are killing in the name of Islam are nothing but terrorists and infidels," the unnamed sister said.
