Lebanon mourns as bloodshed occurred at a protest in the capital.

Gunfire broke out on Thursday during a protest by Shia Muslim groups against the judge investigating last year’s huge blast at the city’s port. Hezbollah, which organized the protest, says demonstrators were fired on by gunmen on rooftops.

Nobody has taken the responsibility as of yet but Hezbollah is blaming the Christian factions for the attack. Huge tension surrounds the inquiry into the port explosion that killed 219 in August 2020.

Heavy gunfire erupted in the streets as the crowd passed through a roundabout in the central Tayouneh-Badaro area. Involvement of both the Shia and Christian militia can be seen. The clashes continued for several hours before calm was restored.
