One ISF member injured by protesters in south Lebanon

MTV reported that a member of Lebanon’s Internal Security Forces was wounded when his patrol was pelted with stones in Tyre as it was trying to stop a construction violation. Protesters also blocked the Tyre highway with burning tires.

This comes after the residents of Ouzai district south of Beirut and southern town of Tayr Debba blocked the roads and set tires on fire Wednesday April 13 to protest against Internal Security Forces’ actions to prevent them from illegal construction on Lebanon’s public properties.

As Safir daily reported on Wednesday that there were more than 500 illegal construction violations in southern Lebanon.

Around 1,000 residential units were built on thousands of acres of public property, according to As Safir.

Ouzai district , a Hezbollah and Amal stronghold was all constructed on public properties according to local reports.

    Why weren’t they stopped when the construction began? I agree that it was wrong for them to build there in the first place, but are you going to leave these people homeless now?

    this is another sign that lebanon is not really a proper country with proper govt.
    these pple stealing govt land and building houses on it without any care whatsoever to the authorities.

    if every homeless person acted the way these pple did, imagine what would happen to social order in the country [as if there is a social order that is]..

    homeless pple do not have money to build houses…where do these pple getting the money for the construction equipment?

    they also should ask for accountability the pple in authority in these areas for the lebanese govt does not have any authority there.
