Lebanese woman hit by a bullet during Nasrallah’s speech

A Lebanese woman was hit in the chest by a bullet when Hezbollah supporters fired guns after a speech delivered by the party’s secretary general, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, on Monday to commemorate the end of the 40-day mourning period for slain Hezbollah commander Imad Mugniyah.

Sonia Eid was hit while crossing the street near her home close to the Gabriel Pharmacy in the Achrafieh neighborhood of Beirut and was taken to Rizk Hospital.

Hezbollah and Amal supporters have a habit of firing guns and rockets during their leaders’ television appearances.

The bullet caused severe damage to Eid’s heart, lungs and liver, and she has undergone open-heart surgery.

    It's also nice to note that OTV made fun of LBC and Future because one reported that the bullet was after Nasrallah's speech, and the other that the bullet was from Berri's speech... It's a scandalous contradiction indeed! The fact that the woman was hit by this stupid barbaric behavior is totally irrelevant, or is it not?
