Large Crowd Protests Outside Military Court In Beirut To Release Detained Activists

@safiralchamal | LebArmy

A growing crowd of protesters gathered in front of the Military Tribunal Court in Beirut on Wednesday.

The protesters came from all across Lebanon, demanding the release of activists arrested during the Tripoli protests, in which two protesters died as a result of gunfire used by the Internal Security Forces (ISF).

They also stood against the recent assassinations of political activists, namely Hezbollah-critic Lokman Slim, who was recently found murdered.

The Tripoli Bar Association recently filed a petition to question the ISF over its violations against protesters, including what the association referred to as unjustified arrests.

Over 30 protesters in Tripoli have been arrested in the wake of the events in the northern capital, during which unknown rioters, reportedly with a different agenda than the people protesting, set fire to several buildings, including the municipality of Tripoli.
