Clashes Erupt Between State Security And Kataeb MP Elias Hankach, Here’s What We Know

Clashes erupted between State Security officers and Kataeb MP Elias Hankach who was reportedly beaten by the officers.

This took place outside the State Security Center in Ramlet el Bayda where William Noun has been held since yesterday.

They then arrested a young man who was with MP Hankach. He was later released.

Yesterday, William Noun‘s family house was raided by authorities and he’s been detained ever since.

Protestors closed roads and highways across Lebanon in support. MPs have publicly called this out, with several making their way into the State Security facility to be with William Noun.

Protests have been escalating the last few days over frustrations of stalemate and attempted obstruction of the Beirut Port blast investigation.
