WATCH: As Beirut slips into pandemonium, resembling a warzone, troops shoot from armored vehicles.

On Thursday, Beirut resembled a war zone as the army moved armored vehicles to a split region of the city where violent clashes occurred after a rally was attacked. The army declared that any armed individuals on the streets of the city would be shot.

Tanks and trucks with mounted machine guns were among the armored vehicles used by the Lebanese army. According to on-the-ground sources, the military have proceeded toward a building where terrorists are said to be stationed.

To oversee the response to the violent conflicts, the leader went to the defense ministry.

The Lebanese army claimed in a statement that the firing began as protestors demonstrating against Tarek Bitar, the chief investigator in the Beirut port investigation, passed through a traffic circle in an area separating Christian and Shiite Muslim districts.

According to reports, the gunfire started in Ain el-Remmaneh, a Christian neighborhood, and spun out of control, with rounds fired in both directions.
