The above footage shown by Al-Jadeed is supposed to show how Al-Assir was the one who shot first at the army but I honestly don’t see how they made such an assumption based on this footage. Don’t get me wrong, I am convinced Assir and his buddies are criminals that should be arrested and jailed not just for attacking the army but for having weapons in the first place, but this video, specially the title, is misleading and proves nothing.
If anything, it undermines the earlier report submitted by the Lebanese Army and the Ministry of Defense (See Video Below). In Al-Jadeed footage, the gunshots came from an unknown source far from Assir and the army while in the video below, Al-Assir is the one who started firing at the army.
Update: Here’s another footage taken from Bank Audi’s Camera. It still contradicts with the story shown in the LBC report above.
