84 injured as protesters try to storm Lebanese parliament on blast anniversary

The anniversary of the 4 August Beirut port explosion was marred by violence, as hundreds of protesters attempted to storm parliament, with police responding by shooting tear gas and rubber bullets at the crowd, injuring at least 84.

Protesters descended on parliament in downtown Beirut, with chants of thawra (revolution) and “the people want the downfall of the regime.”

Lebanese army soldiers and Internal Security Forces (ISF) troops stayed within the parliaments’ grounds, holding off protesters by shooting tear gas and rubber bullets, as well as throwing stones and glass bottles, at the advancing crowd.
