In Beirut, the capital, a conflict broke out between demonstrators gathering in front of Parliament and security forces. The fire that broke out in the camp in the city center where protesters stayed, made the tents ash.

There were demonstrations in Beirut, the capital, and many cities in Lebanon. Many demonstrators were on the streets with the slogan “We will not pay the price”.

Demonstrators protesting the government accused of economic and political uncertainty and corruption in the country gathered in the square in front of the Parliament in Beirut.

Police intervened in the group carrying tree branches and banners with pepper spray and truncheons. Security forces used water cannons from time to time.

The Internal Security Forces, known as the Lebanese gendarmerie, suggested that the demonstrators approached the police at the entrance to the Parliament directly and aggressively, and asked the protesters to leave the square for their own security.


Eyewitnesses say that the young protesters threw police stones and pots, and the protesters pushed the barricades in the city center under the cordon.

On the other hand, a fire broke out in the tent camp set up by protesters in the center of Beirut. With many tents turning to ashes, the Internal Security Forces denied their allegations of setting the camp on fire.


Lebanese President Michel Avn ordered the army and security officials to keep calm in Beirut. According to the statement from the Presidency, Avn has asked the army to ensure the security of peaceful protesters with public buildings and private properties.
