Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Marta Hurtado expressed concerns over the recent tensions in Lebanon.
 
“We are concerned by the increasing number of violent clashes between protesters and security forces in Lebanon in recent days. Some demonstrators have resorted to using violence to express their grievances, and security forces have responded, at times, with unnecessary or disproportionate use of force,” she said in her briefing notes.
