  • Description

    More than 10,000 people demonstrated in Beirut on Wednesday (1 March) in support of the Palestinian resistance movement following recent clashes between Israeli troops and Palestinian guerrillas in South Lebanon.

    The demonstrators marched in the main streets of the capital, carrying Palestinian flags and placards supporting the commandos, denouncing peaceful solutions, and calling for military unity.

    SYNOPSIS: Some also chanted slogans against the Lebanese Government for its policy of sending the Lebanese army into the southern border areas after the Israeli withdrawal. The border area had previously been reserved almost exclusively for Palestinian commandos to launch raids into Israel and neighbouring occupied Syrian territories.
