Almost a week since the deadly explosion that shattered Beirut, new tensions have risen in Lebanon. Now that the hope of finding survivors has diminished, anti-government protests have begun in full swing. Violent demonstrators stormed the Lebanese parliament alleging that the massive disaster took place due to the government’s negligence and the corruption within the system. The security forces who were managing the protests had to use water cannons and tear gas to disburse the protestors and bring the situation under control. So far, 65 protestors have been injured and 20 have been arrested. The Lebanese Red Cross had to step in to treat the wounded protestors.
Sources also claim that the Prime Minister of Lebanon, Hassan Diab is considering the entire government’s resignation. Rescue operations at the site of the explosion are underway. However, sources state that there is very little hope in finding any survivors.
