It was typical Tuesday morning on a bustling street in Dikwaneh, Mount Lebanon, when a large Lebanese man wearing a shabby T-shirt shoved a Syrian Sukleen worker against the wall, ordering him to "kneel" before gripping the garbage man's shoulders and forcing him to the ground.Writhing beneath the violent clutch, the Sukleen worker resisted and stood firm against the wall, Anastacia al-Hajj said, describing the incident she witnessed on her way to work. The Sukleen worker bent down, picked up his garbage bags and just walked away.When asked about the wound, the Sukleen worker said the young man had slashed his cheek using a pocket knife.The Hajj sister's account sparked an outcry on social media, with several bloggers and prominent figures tweeting the story, prompting a response from Sukleen.
