Earlier in the day, the Lebanese Army Command commented on the security events in the Tayouneh area, which witnessed heavy shooting against the backdrop of a sit-in by supporters of Hezbollah and the Amal movement against the investigating judge in the Beirut port explosion.
The army command said in a statement: “As protesters headed to the Adliya area, they were exposed to bursts of fire in the Tayouneh area – Badaro.
The command announced that “the deployed army units will shoot at any armed man on the roads and at anyone who shoots from anywhere else, and asks civilians to leave the streets.”
Lebanese activists circulated a videotape showing dozens of members of the Lebanese army trying to prevent members of Hezbollah and the Amal movement from escalating, amid the rising voices of the militia members:
