An unknown group threw a molotov cocktail bomb at the al-Jadeed TV building in Wata el-Mousaitbeh overnight, according to the media outlet.
The bomb self-extinguished before reaching the building, and security forces are currently investigating the incident.
Recently, al-Jadeed TV and actress Joanna Karaky faced criticism after Karaky made controversial comments on a sketch comedy show.
In the sketch, Karaky claimed that many southerners have married United Nations peacekeepers, leading to a high number of blond, green- or blue-eyed children in the region. This a false claim as this is common across all regions in Lebanon.
This sketch was broadcasted on al-Jadeed’s comedy show Fashet Kheleq, and was met with widespread condemnation from southerners on social media.
