In the meantime, two people were injured, including the HoR member Saleh Al-Hashim, on Tuesday ahead of the session to vote on whether or not to hold a popular referendum on a new constitution.

According to local media, Hashim had to be sent to hospital to remove the bullet he received in his body due to gunfight outside the HoR’s hall.
