Lebanese police on Monday used water hoses to disperse protesters rallying near the US Embassy north of Beirut against the IDF's ground offensive in Gaza. Some 500 university students hurled sticks at police and tried to break through the barbed wire fence outside the heavily fortified embassy. Police opened water hoses in a bid to push the protesters back. On Sunday, five civilians and one policeman were lightly injured when police first used water hoses and later fired tear gas to push demonstrators away from the embassy. In Damascus, about 5,000 people held another anti-Israel demonstration. The protesters burned effigies of the US president and Israeli foreign minister and called on Hizbullah to fire rockets on Israel.
