The Lebanese army issued a statement, in which it said that it had opened an investigation with a soldier from it who appeared in a video clip shooting unarmed demonstrators, during the violence that took place in the capital, Beirut, last Thursday.

Security reports spoke of the presence of snipers, and the use of machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, which led to the killing of seven people, and the injury of 32 others, while the parties or persons involved in the shooting have not yet been determined, during the clashes.
