Lebanese protest rioters clash with army. Soleimani reported in Beirut

The violent protest demonstrations sweeping Lebanon in the past week spilled over on Wednesday into the south, where protesters clashed with army troops in Nabatea. In Beirut, the protesters moved into most parts of the capital and laid siege to the central bank. The country’s main highways remain blocked. Iran’s Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani is rumored to have arrived in Beirut to take a hand in suppressing the unrest. Some sources report that Iran’s National Security Council decided that it was time to intervene in the Lebanese crisis since it was putting Tehran’s interests in Lebanon at high risk.

    I am not one of those constant Debka haters, but come on. I dont see much violence going on in the protests in Lebanon. I appreciate this site has an angle, but that just straight up not true at the current time.

    I know right. Sometimes it seems like they actually have a little bit of info. Like the photos of the Iranian missiles a few weeks where they showed them days before the saudis. But yeah often it seems more like propaganda than news….

    The Syrian Hezbollah fighters they too should retreat minimum 30 km off of the Lebanon border.
    Hezbollah fighters are leftovers of the invasion and occupation of Lebanon by the Syrian Army up until 2005.

    Now the Israelis should track General Soleimani and take him out with a stealth missile mounted on a F-35!
