Hundreds of Lebanese protesters, including some waving Palestinian flags, swarmed the US embassy in Beirut Tuesday evening in response to the massive blast at a Gaza City hospital that reportedly killed hundreds of people.
Police had to deploy tear gas to disperse the demonstrators who gathered outside the embassy hours ahead of President Biden’s arrival in neighboring Israel to show support for the Jewish state in its conflict with the terrorist group Hamas.
One protester was seen on video posted to social media scaling a barbed-wire fence surrounding the building in order to plant a Palestinian flag on the embassy’s flagpole as fellow ralliers cheered him on from below.
Elsewhere in Beirut, protesters descended on the French embassy.
The dual demonstrations came just hours after Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah called for “a day of unprecedented anger” in Beirut after the deadly explosion at the Gaza medical center. (Read more from “Hundreds Waving Palestinian Flags Swarm U.S. Embassy Ahead of Biden’s Visit to Israel” HERE)
