Children trapped due to clashes – AlJazeera
Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr, reporting from Beirut, says children were trapped at their schools by the clashes.
“People are trapped at home, some children are still trapped at school. People are terrified, they don’t know what is happening in their city. About 200 metres (656 feet) from here there is a decades-long dividing line dating back to the days of the civil war (1975-1990).
“It is scenes like this that bring back a lot of memories for many Lebanese who have been traumatised by many bouts of violence but this has been one of the worst bouts of violence.”
Pictures reportedly taken in a school in Furn Al Shebbak area [located in the center of the clashes currently taking place] – kids hiding in hallways and under their desks in class. We can Thank Hezbollah, Amal, LF, FPM, Marada for this shitty display of ‘nationalism’ #Lebanon https://t.co/OpF3CFizcW
