The Kahaleh incident will in all probability take few days to chill down and no severe investigation shall be carried out, as traditional, till we get one other comparable incident, adopted by tensions then a cooldown and so forth. The 2021 Tayyouneh clashes left 7 individuals lifeless, the 2021 Khaldeh clashes left 2 individuals lifeless, tens have been killed within the 2008 Beirut clashes and I may record a number of different incidents with all having one factor in widespread, a self-governing Iranian-financed armed group that’s above the military, the state and the regulation.
The state of lawlessness and chaos that this get together embodies can not presumably lead besides to additional violence and chaos. In at present’s incident in Kahaleh, it doesn’t matter whether or not locals shot first on the armed militiamen guarding the truck, what issues is the truth that individuals in civilian garments armed to the tooth are arrogantly roaming extremely frequented roads with vans loaded with God is aware of what.
Does that justify locals firing at them? After all not. Even when provoked, civilians ought to resort below any circumstances to the Lebanese safety forces, however as soon as once more, when the rule of regulation ceases to exist, individuals will assume they’ve the identical “survival” rights as others and arm themselves.
Two individuals have been killed at present, one from both sides, due to this collapsed state we’re dwelling in, and I’m assured there gained’t be any severe investigation or accountability.
Once more, nobody cares, or ought to care, who shot first at present as a result of it’s a waste of time. Weapons needs to be within the palms of the Lebanese Safety Forces, particularly these contained in the nation, all different speak is whole B.S. There’s no president or authorities or parliament that may perform correctly in the event that they don’t cope with the elephant within the room first.
Honest condolences to the households of each victims.
