To make matters worse, the carnage perpetrated in Lebanon’s capital was immediately weaponized against Hezbollah in the Western media, which is refusing to name the main perpetrator.
According to eyewitness reports, snipers opened fire from rooftops in Beirut’s Tayouneh neighbourhood during what was meant to be a peaceful protest by supporters of the Amal and Hezbollah movements. The demonstrators demanded that the chief investigator in last year’s Beirut Port explosion, Judge Tarek Bitar, be fired, accusing Hezbollah of being politically biased.
Instead of being a typical protest in Lebanon, spectators and protestors were caught in the center of an ambush, which reportedly evolved into a four-hour gunfight, requiring the involvement of the Lebanese Army to bring the situation under control.
“At the time of the ambush, I was teaching an online class from home, and my kids were at school,” explains Marwa Osman, a university lecturer and political commentator who had rushed to get her children out of harm’s way.
“I started hearing gunfire and kept my class going at first,” she said, “but then some of the students in the area started panicking, and they had bullets flying all over their houses, or next to their houses, so we had to end off for people’s safety,” she said. She then called her children’s school, which informed her that the children could hear bullets and RPGs. Marwa was told to take a detour when she went to pick up her children, which took her 20 minutes longer than normal to reach her destination, during which she passed “just near to Ain al Remmaneh,” where the shootings first occurred. “You could hear the gunfire, the zipping of the rounds, the RPGs, it was a tight scenario and anxiety was through the roof,” she recalled.
