Clashes erupted between a pro-Hezbollah group and anti-government protesters in Riad al-Solh in Beirut on Thursday.
Footage shows the groups clashing, throwing punches, and hitting each other various items. A protester can be seen being carried on a stretcher to an ambulance. Riot police also arrived at the scene to restore order.
The clashes reportedly came just hours after Lebanese President... Еще Michel Aoun offered to begin dialogue with protesters.
Lebanon was swept up in protests last week over economic stagnation and corruption. The trigger was a raft of new taxes, also targeting WhatsApp calls, designed to tackle the country's high public debt.
