Day of national mourning and mass protests in Lebanon

Several demonstrations have been called in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, to condemn the attack on the Gaza hospital in which at least 500 people have died. The protests in Beirut have concentrated in front of the embassy of the United States, Israel's main ally in the region. Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced that Wednesday will be a day of national mourning for the victims of 'the massacres and attacks committed by the Israeli enemy', after learning of the attack on the Al-Ahli hospital.

The decree, published by the official Lebanese news agency ANN, highlighted that this "massacre, which targeted defenseless civilians at the Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza, constituted a disgrace in the history of humanity." Consequently, "all flags raised in official departments, institutions and municipalities are lowered as a sign of mourning, and the usual programs of radio and television stations are modified in accordance with this momentous event," he added.

Lebanon's Iran-backed Hezbollah movement on Tuesday called for a "day of rage" to condemn what it said was an Israeli attack on a hospital in Gaza City. Israel's military blamed a failed rocket by Islamic Jihad, another Gaza-based armed group. Hundreds of people have also gathered in front of the French embassy in Beirut, raising Hezbollah flags and throwing stones at the building. In Tehran, the capital of Iran, there have been protests in front of the French and British embassies and television images show other demonstrations in front of the Israeli representation in Turkey and Jordan, in the southwest of Yemen and in the capitals of Morocco and Iraq.
