Activists and journalists circulated on social media, today, Thursday, photos and videos that brought the Lebanese memory back about 31 years, as children were under fire and hiding between homes and cars for fear of death in a “civil war” that lasted 15 years.

Painful scenes and not new to the eyes of the Lebanese citizen spread on the communication sites, among them students from the (Al-Freer) School in Furn Al-Chebbak trying to hide under the study desks, others sleeping on the ground, and another showing a child sheltering in a car and a child sheltering with a soldier’s body from the shooting that accompanied the events of the (Al-Tayouneh) area in the capital Beirut.

The Freire School, Furn El Chebbak.

There is nothing in it of fear, killing, displacement and criminality, as we and our children lived in this hybrid country.

The Lebanese journalist Larissa Aoun published on her Twitter page a number of photos and videos of this terrifying day for Beirut students.

"Children are in shelters waiting for their parents," she commented.

My daughter tells me her experience at school on the day of the liberation of Ali Hassan Khalil, Youssef Fenianos and

Ghazi Zuaiter.

The sounds of bullets, panic and the crying of her friends, and the explosion of Beirut Port is present.

Why do our children have to live with this fear and insecurity, like who or what?

Karmal occupied and corrupt country escaping from justice.

Some newspapers and websites commented on scenes of students' fear and panic that Beirut is witnessing today a "small civil war."

Pictures and videos that documented the situation of Beirut’s students today sounded the alarm, according to the comments of many pioneers of communication sites who asked, “What is the fault of the children that they pay the price of unarmed weapons?”

It is forbidden to happen.. the scene cuts the heart, and God is

Lebanon sad today 💔

God willing, the most beautiful will return, may God

The decorations (Lebanon collapsed), (civil war), (Tayouneh) and (Lebanon is not fine) topped the list of the most popular decorations on Twitter, not only in Lebanon but in the entire Arab world.

Lebanon who are killing each other, not for the sake of anything other than a party that is

destroying their country with their own hands.

On Twitter, Lebanese demanded the Minister of Education to resign, against the background of today's events.

The Freire School - Furn El Chebbak ... Children whose crime is that they were born in a country ruled by militias.. We lived our childhood in war and here are our children paying the price for the people's sectarian choices.. Enough

The security deterioration in Beirut began with unidentified gunmen shooting extensively at supporters of Hezbollah and the Amal movement during a demonstration, denouncing the decisions of the judicial investigator in the Beirut port explosion case, Judge Tariq Al-Bitar.

Hezbollah and the Amal Movement said in a joint statement, "After the participants in the peaceful assembly went to the Palace of Justice to denounce the politicization of the investigation into the port issue, and upon their arrival to the Tayouneh area (mixed Shiite and Christian) they were exposed to direct fire from snipers on the roofs of the buildings."

On August 4, 2020, a massive explosion occurred in the port of Beirut, killing 217 people and wounding about 7,000 others, as well as massive material damage to residential and commercial buildings.

History repeats itself.

31 years since the civil war ended in Lebanon, today we see some terrible scenes in Beirut and other Lebanese cities at the hands of terrorist organization Hezbollah.

It's like nothing changed, no lesson learned.
