Videos Show Lebanese Army Beating Protesters Including A Priest In Byblos

Clashes have been erupting between the Lebanese Army and protesters in Byblos blocking the highway in solidarity with William Noun‘s arrest.

Videos surfaced showing Lebanese soldiers beating protestors as well as a priest and has caused a public outcry among people and MPs.

Judge Zaher Hamadeh just gave the notice to detain William Noun, despite being in custody for over 12 hours already.

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

Roads and highways across Lebanon are closing in support.

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

William Noun‘s brother, Joe Noun, was killed in the explosion. He was a firefighter and one of the first to respond during the Beirut Port blast.
