A grainy video, which surfaced on social media Tuesday and was widely shared, showed a group of men verbally abusing and then beating a Syrian refugee on the street.Following the recent deaths of four Syrian nationals in Lebanese Army custody after a raid on Arsal and the perceived rise in anti-Syrian sentiment in the country, a group of activists called for a demonstration in Downtown Beirut calling for solidarity with refugees and an investigation into the deaths.However, the protest was quickly branded as anti-Lebanese Army by some on social media. The operation saw 356 Syrian nationals detained, of which four died, after the Army was targeted by five suicide bombers, an explosive device and a grenade attack.
