FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Lebanon tensions, Elections in Iraq, Energy crunch, Covid health pass, Mozzarella vs. Camembert” – below is their description.

It is the worst gunfire endured by Beirut in more than a decade. Four hours of sustained exchanges between rooftop snipers and pro-Hezbollah demonstrators below, rallying against a magistrate’s efforts to follow criminal negligence cases against officials responsible for last year’s port explosion that shook Lebanon’s capital to its core. If the Lebanese are spooked, it is because it happened on what was a frontline during the civil war between Christian and Shia militias.
