Under the title “Border Confrontation”, Marianna Belinkaya wrote, in Kommersant, about the alarming situation in Lebanon and attempts to protect the country from civil war.
The article stated: “Lebanese politicians are trying to find a compromise regarding the explosion that occurred in the port of Beirut last August.. After judicial and political disputes led to casualties in Beirut, the politicians were quick to stress that this is not a new civil war in Lebanon.” Meanwhile, ordinary Lebanese are looking at the development of the situation with anxious eyes. Will a civil war break out and how does Lebanon live today?
Beirut looks really scary. The streets are dark, beggars are on every corner, the city center, the area where the parliament and the seat of government are, is closed by the army.. You can only enter the area if you have permission, for example, an appointment for an interview. Lebanese politicians fear provocations that could lead to massacres.
Without savings in hard currency, it is difficult for the Lebanese to survive. While remittances from abroad save those who do, everyone who can leave the country tries to do so. The symbol of the new Lebanon, a graffiti depicting a man carrying a backpack on his shoulders and a briefcase in his hands. There are those who still believe in change and continue to take to the streets to demand reforms. In fact, they are not many. The Lebanese are tired, and most feel stuck in a vicious circle from which there is no way out.
Concerning the fears of civil war, after the events of Tayouneh, a resident of the Ain El-Remmaneh neighborhood told Kommersant that many of her neighbors have not yet returned to their homes, two weeks ago, they are afraid.
But the Lebanese Forces and Hezbollah assert that they do not want a civil war. And other political forces stress the same thing. As Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati told “Kommersant”, the shooting in Beirut is nothing but a security incident that happened in the past, and it should not be considered the beginning of a civil war.
As the Lebanese fears grow, politicians accuse outside forces of destabilizing the situation. Some, accusing Iran; and others the West and Saudi Arabia.
