US Embassy Protest in Lebanon

September 7, 2013

_MG_7941 - Version 2

After it was announced yesterday that the U.S. Embassy had asked its non-emergency personnel and their family members to leave Lebanon yesterday because of security concerns, a protest of about 50 people gathered in front of one of the streets that lead to the American consulate in Awkar, Lebanon to decry potential military intervention of the United States in Syria.

”The blood will be on your hands Obama,” demonstrators yelled from the crowd of Syrian regime supporters, some of them waving gloved hands splattered with symbolic red paint.

As the region continues to wait and prepare for a possible U.S. intervention in Syria, there are many reports that have highlighted potential consequences of the strike. The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the United States intercepted an Iranian official’s order for Iraqi militants to attack U.S. interests in Iraq’s capital, Baghdad. Now Lebanon reported this morning that pro-Syrian regime groups will target Western interests in Lebanon in the event of a strike, rather than attacking Israel from the south.

Below are some photos from yesterday’s demonstration, taken by Omar Alkalouti.
