Another video that was widely shared on social media shows a man carrying an RPG launcher wandering in the streets of Beirut. However, the armed man was shot moments later.
Clashes have begun in the Lebanese capital after an arrest warrant issued by Beirut's port blast judge Tariq Al-Bitar against ex-finance minister and current parliament member Ali Hassan Khalil.
After the arrest warrant, Hezbollah and Amal movement supports have vowed to protest against the judge's decision but rapidly the situation has developed into uncontrollable clashes.
Since the unrest, multiple shocking videos of armed groups firing live bullets were released and went viral on social media including one that shows a man with a blackhead mask shooting during the clashes.
