Tear Gas Fired at Protesters outside US Embassy in Lebanon

BEIRUT – Lebanese police and army soldiers on Sunday violently clashed with protestors in the vicinity of the US Embassy in Beirut, part of ongoing demonstrations against the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Security forces fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse the protesters, many carrying Palestinian flags, who set fire to tires and threw tear gas grenades back at the police, as documented by an epa photojournalist.

Protestors tried to remove barbed wire blocking a road near the US Embassy in the East Beirut neighborhood of Awkar, and many were overcome with tear gas and had to be carried away.

On Wednesday, United States President Donald Trump announced a decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move his country’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
